Transport yourself to sunny Morocco tonight with the bright flavours and exotic scents of this dish. For a simple next-day salad, just add a splash of berry or balsamic vinaigrette salad dressing and a handful of diced fresh veggies to any leftovers. If you use long grain rice, cooking time can be reduced to 20 minutes. Each serving is an excellent source of iron and vitamin C.
