Make your own ras el hanout in the Thermomix


You’ll find ras el hanout in a lot of Moroccan recipes, couscous, tagines, with meat or even fish.

How about a Moroccan chicken with lemony couscous for dinner tonight? I’ve just cooked one and have been instantly transported to Marrakech! Smells and tastes divine.

Homemade means you can adapt the spices to your taste buds and with a little help from the Thermomix, it is done in no time.
