Kelly’s Homemade Clean-Eating “Á-La-Marocaine” Vinaigrette a.k.a. The-First-Time-Ever-Clean-Eating-&-Moroccan-Belong-Together-Oh-&-Taking-You-Back-To-My-Roots!
Hi (AGAIN) lovies!! <3
Sorry, I know I did not give you guys much time to recover from that MAGNIFICIENTLY-WONDERFULLY-BEAUTIFUL Turkey Meatball Soup I had for dins tonight. BUT, I JUST HAD TO share this vinaigrette with you (Ya know, in case you’re pondering about tomorrow’s lunch & y’all need a savoury & beautifully-spiced vinaigrette to SPICE-UP & BASICALLY, MAKE, your salad).
Ladies & gents, I present you with Kelly’s Homemade Clean-Eating “Á-La-Marocaine” Vinaigrette a.k.a. The-First-Time-Ever-Clean-Eating-&-Moroccan-Belong-Together-Oh-&-Taking-You-Back-To-My-Roots!
Let’s be honest, for all of you munchkins with Moroccan mamas & memes, you know VERY WELL that clean-eating & Moroccan food NEVER, and I mean, NEVER, belong in the same sentence, let alone, BELONG TOGETHER. I mean, it’s all about that red-oily-sauce, EVEN THOUGH MEME SWEARS THAT “IL N’Y A PAS UNE GOUTTE D’HUILE!!!” (IT’S HILARIOUS because you see all them oil bubbles at the bottom of her skillet, not to mention THE GREASE, but you still decide not to say a word, well because… We all know it ain’t worth arguing with meme, right? SHE’S ALWAYS RIGHT). Anywho munchkins, LET ME BLOW YOUR MIND! I’m about to make MOROCCAN & CLEAN-EATING HAPPEN. I SWEAR. OR SHALL I SAY, “Mais, je te jures!!!!!”
GUYS, THIS BABE WILL GIVE YOU ALL THE FEELS & will take you back to those late nights in the KITCH helping your mama whip up a Moroccan feast!!!! (Miss those nights & miss you mommy & love you more than ever).
P.S. As with ALL MY SAUCES, DRESSINGS & VINAIGRETTES, I totz. recommend doubling your batch. It always happens that I get messages & phone calls from you munchkins telling me that you FINISHED THEM TOO QUICKLY!! Well, my loves:
1) the same thing used to always happen to me, until I smartened up & started doubling & tripling my recipes! &
2) the ONLY solution is to whip up a little more in anticipation of your DEVOURING!
So please, TAKE MY ADVICE, BABES! YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT.
It’s funny; I’m sitting here talking to you guys about how you need to double your batch, YET, I STILL HAVE NOT EVEN REVEALED THE INGREDIENTS LIST. I swear, I crack myself up sometimes, really. OKAY, LET’S GET RIGHT TO IT (Sorry lovies, I get so carried away. I legit need an assistant to be sitting next to me while I type away frantically & to tell me when it’s simply ENOUGH. But, is it ever really ENOUGH? I don’t think so… Like, I just love to rant. Plus, I legit feel like I’m talking to all you munchkins in a coffee shop RN & I’m lovin’ it! I HAVE SO MANY IDEAS TO SHARE!) OKAY, RANT ACTUALLY OVER. BYE.
My loves, YOU WILL NEED:
- 2/3 cup of organic extra-virgin olive oil;
- 2 tbsp. of freshly squeezed lemon juice;
- 2 tbsp. of organic apple cider vinegar;
- 1 ½ tsp. of paprika;
- 1 tsp. of ground cumin (RECENT OBSESSION, YOU? BYE!!!);
- 1 clove of garlic, MINCED;
- 1 GENEROUS pinch of cayenne pepper;
- 4 tsp. of dried parsley flakes;
- 1 tsp. of organic Himalayan pink sea salt;
- LOTS & LOTS of freshly ground black pepper;
OUI, OUI, C’EST TOUT, MES AMOURS! I told you I was making clean eating & Moroccan happen. YOU SEE, IT’S POSSIBLE. It’s just that it kinda means giving up that red oily-AF sauce & I don’t think meme will ever be able to say buh-bye to her roots. THEY GO WAY BACK.
Okay lovies, NOW TO WHIP THIS BABY UP, you basically don’t really need to do ANYTHING AT ALL. Legit, just combine all these beautiful, savoury and spicy (I’m talking “Épicé”, NOT HOT & SPICY) ingredients & MIX THE EFF OUT OF ‘EM! Obvs, TASTE THE BABE & adjust the seasonings adding more lemon juice, apple cider OR, IF YOU’RE MOI, MORE SPICES!!!!
Munchkins, THE BEST PART ABOUT THIS BABY? She can keep well up to 2 WEEKS, REFRIGERATED. Ergo, my suggestion to double, or even triple your batch!!!!! But, honestly, she ain’t going to last more than a week anyway… AND I’M BEING REALLY GENEROUS WHEN I SAY A WEEK… Hey, that generosity, IT’S THE MORROCAN IN ME. What can I say?
NOW MY LOVES, DRIZZLE/SMOTHER/POUR/DRENCH veggies, salads, meats, chicken, seafood, ALL OF THE ABOVE in this beautifulness & DEVOUR! Basically, I just took you to Morocco with me, babies!!!!! ADMIT YOU LOVED IT. BYE!
OH & FOOD PORN (OBVS!):
BON APPÉTIT, MES AMOURS!!! <3 <3 <3
