North African inspired dish makes a great appetizer, warm salad or even side dish. This is a recipe that wants to be adjusted. Play with the spices, the cilantro and the parsley until you get a balance you enjoy.

Eagles may fly, but they also risk being sucked into the jet engines of Air Force 1. Better to slink out of town ever so slowly, and avoid being bait for the predators' Eyes-R-uS.As I go, I'd rather appear to be a moeiqe-ual-anrmal, the tortoise. Never you mind...Bill K.
