not I (said the Little Red Hen
) Northern Africa is every bit as Mediterranean as Spain, Greece, Italy, France, etc... The cuisine is just as healthy, if one sticks to it.
Brtammy, you should be able to find spices and hard to find ingredients on line and maintain a decent pantry tnat way. I buy spices from Vanns Spices
, and fancy olive oil and pastas at www.salumeriaitaliana.com
They have fancy jams and mustards and other wonderful condiments there, as well.
Jean, that sounds like tonight's dinner!
just the right thing to fix while I roast a chicken and other prep for tomorrow. Thanks.
