A Very Nice… Moroccan Meal!

A Very Nice… Moroccan Meal!

I’ve been using Instagram for about a year or so now and I have to say I love it.  There are some amazing people doing incredible things on there when it comes to food – and I could look at beautiful photos of their meals for hours. But what I love even more (hard to believe!) is the connections and sense of community. I’ve made some lovely virtual friends who really inspire me in my home and kitchen.

One is @averyniceidea who is making spice and food kits to cut down on kitchen waste – which you know is a big thing for me! And she’s also keen to give people the confidence to cook new foods in their own homes. I tried her falafel kit, which was literally just add water, wait and cook, and her tagine spice mix. I have been making my own tagine for years now (recipe coming soon) and it was so interesting to try her take on that Moroccan fave. And delicious too!

I also found them a great way of letting the kids make dinner, I let them try the curry kit, as the recipes are short and simple to follow. Also, brilliant if you are going on holiday and want to pack something to quickly cook up with local produce. I always take some herbs and spices with me, these are perfect for packing!
