Another entry from tomatoes and peppers. This time, the vegetables are not raw but cooked in a spicy sauce, where you find the flavors of garlic, paprika and olive oil.
"Tektouka" or "chakchouka", these are two names that refer to this tasty dish that is widespread in Morocco, which is appreciated both for its pleasant taste and for its nutritional value. In the eastern parts of Morocco, 'Tektouka' is sometimes referred to as "Flifla". The word is in fact of Berber origin, and it means stew of vegetables, and it came to us from Tunisia.

Peppers are sometimes roasted in the oven or on a gas oven plate over medium heat before adding tomatoes in a pan with a few spices (especially paprika) and garlic, that is how this gastronomic wonder is made. Once in the mouth, the inimitable smoky taste comes rushing, a sweet and tender taste that makes the palate happy (with no sugar or honey).

In Morocco, "chakchouka" is eaten hot or warm, and is usually eaten with bread. This dish is often appreciated as a starter or as a side dish, and is savored by the families in Moroccan homes. It's a great opportunity to make all members of the family eat vegetables, even for those who are usually not very fond of them.
