I have not traveled in a year and two months. But the worst is not being able to visit Morocco anymore; it holds a very special place in my heart. If you know me you know that my dream as a child was to visit Morocco. Apart from that, do you know what I miss the most? The bread! So, what better way to travel than through a Moroccan bread recipe? Let’s go make some khobz.
What is khobz?
For those who wonder what khobz means, it means bread. It is Moroccan Darija spelling, not traditional Arabic spelling. However, the word khobz does derive from the Arabic word for bread, hoobz. I will try to go into the differences in another blog post. For now, let’s get started on the khobz.
So, I remember seeing this round bread everywhere in Morocco. I would even see men pushing carts full of these delicious round loaves. Please see the image below. It’s not hard to wonder why though. The khobz is a Moroccan staple for breakfast, lunch or dinner. I personally love it with some ground beef. But it can be enjoyed with so much; it’s so versatile.
