heidi's moroccan soupWe stuck to the Moroccan section for our second dish from Heidi Swanson’s Near and Far. This classic harira mixes sweet spices with some heat for a wonderful fragrance.

heidi's bean and potatoWe have been incredibly impressed with Heidi Swanson’s new book Near and Far. After admittedly being somewhat unenthusiastic about Super Natural Cooking (Might we have been expecting too much?), we’ve decided that Heidi S. has more than redeemed herself with this beautifully-photographed book of food inspired from her home in San Francisco and her travels in Morocco, Japan, Italy, France, and India. This first dish, taken from the Morocco section, is a tagine of yellow potatoes, green beans, and poached eggs. heidi's bean and potato 2
Heidi S. calls for saffron, but my mom and I unashamedly added turmeric in its place. We’ve been adding turmeric to absolutely everything. Recipe #1 down. 115 Recipes to go.
