Salade de feuille de mauve à la marocaine ("Bekkoula")

Moroccan mallow leaf salad ("Bekkoula")

The Moroccan mallow leaf salad recipe is perfect as a starter! It takes a little more time to prepare than a classic salad, but it's definitely worth it:

Ingredients :

  • 2 bunches of mallow leaves*
  • 5 crushed garlic cloves
  • 1/2 tea glass of olive oil
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp sweet pepper
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 bowl of chopped parsley and cilantro
  • 1 candied lemon
  • 50g of red olives
  • Lemon juice
  • Salt

Preparation :

  • Clean and rinse your mallow leaves
  • Drain and chop finely
  • In a couscoussier, steam them for 20 minutes
  • Arrange them in a frying pan and add the olive oil, cumin, peppers, salt, garlic, parsley and coriander
  • Fry everything over low heat for 10 minutes then add the lemon juice
  • Decorate with olives and candied lemon
  • Serve this salad warm or cold

We used the small TANGER aperitif bowls, available on the LAOUNE store , to serve these olives!

*This recipe can be prepared with spinach
