Total: 1 hour 50 minutes



  • 1 lb lamb shoulder, cut into chunks
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp ground paprika
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 2 large zucchinis, sliced
  • 1 butternut squash, peeled and sliced
  • 1/2 cup tahini
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Fresh parsley, for garnish


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).

  2. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the lamb chunks and cook until browned on all sides. Remove the lamb from the skillet and set aside.

  3. In the same skillet, add the onion and garlic. Cook until softened and fragrant.

  4. Add the cumin, coriander, paprika, cinnamon, cayenne pepper, salt, and pepper to the skillet. Stir to coat the onion and garlic with the spices.

  5. Pour in the chicken broth and bring to a simmer. Return the lamb to the skillet and cook for 1 hour, covered, until the meat is tender.

  6. Meanwhile, steam the zucchini and butternut squash until fork-tender.

  7. In a separate bowl, mix the tahini and grated Parmesan cheese until well combined.

  8. Arrange the steamed zucchini and butternut squash in a baking dish. Pour the tahini mixture over the top and spread evenly.

  9. Transfer the lamb from the skillet to the baking dish, arranging it over the tahini squash mixture.

  10. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes, until the lamb is golden and crispy.

  11. Serve the Marrakech lamb with tahini squash gratin hot, garnished with fresh parsley.
