These Moroccan Spiced Oranges make a healthy, delicious and easy desert everyone in your family will enjoy. You can actually serve these beautiful oranges at a dinner party, barbecue or just eat them as an afternoon snack. The orange blossom water gives them an exotic flavor that will surprise your taste buds, and the cinnamon spices them up just a tad.
The original recipe calls for sugar and cinnamon. I personally prefer not to use sugar. I feel like serving sugar over fruit is just like serving sugar over sugar. Oranges are good for you but they have a lot a carbohydrates, so to insure that you will be serving your family a healthy desert, you should skip the sugar. However, if you are serving this dish in a party and want to make it sweeter, then add a teaspoon of sugar. I am using powdered sugar mainly for the presentation, which I dust over the edge of the plate, but you can skip it as well.
I hope you get to try this recipe and enjoy it!
Prep Time: 10 minutes
2 Navel Oranges Peeled and Sliced into 1/4 inch rings
1 tsp of Orange Blossom Water
Powdered Sugar (optional)
Walnuts for garnish (optional)
Mint leaves for garnish (optional)
Dust with Cinnamon and powdered sugar. Garnish with walnuts and mint leaves then server.
You can chill the oranges for 15 minutes before serving, but I think they taste better if you serve them immediately.
If you are using walnuts, and I highly recommend that you do, you can sandwich them using the sliced oranges as shown of the picture. They add a nice crunch to the oranges and you will find yourself reaching out for more slices.
