Hello everyone, today’s recipe is for Moroccan Pilaf. Pilaf is just a fancy name for rice cooked by absorbing stock usually with some vegetables and seasoning.  I’ve made a Moroccan version seasoned with ras el hanout and packed full of sultanas, pistachio nuts and pomegranate.  This makes a perfect stand alone meal but also a great side dish with roast chicken and any leftovers works well cold for lunch.
