Coca-Cola Moroccan Turkey with Vegetables


One of the classic combinations of flavors in Moroccan cooking is green olives and preserved lemons. In this hearty dish, turkey legs are slowly braised in liquid with an aromatic blend of spices and a basketful of vegetables.

What You Need

Coca-Cola Moroccan Turkey with Vegetables


  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the drumsticks and brown on all sides, turning to cook evenly, about 5 minutes. Transfer to the slow cooker. Add the onion to the skillet and cook until it is starting to color, about 3 minutes. Stir in the garlic and flour, cook for 30 seconds, then stir in the coriander, cumin, cinnamon, paprika and ginger. Add the hot stock and bring the mixture to a boil. Stir in the Coca-Cola and about 1 teaspoon of salt and black pepper to taste. Scrape into the slow cooker. Cover and cook on high for about 15 minutes until the liquid begins to simmer. Turn the knob to slow/low (depending on your appliance) and cook for about 3 hours. Add the preserved lemons, carrots, bell pepper, zucchini and chickpeas. Recover and cook until the vegetables are tender, about 1 ½ hours. Carefully take the drumsticks out of the pot, remove and discard the skin, bones and tendons. Cut the meat into bite-size pieces and return to the pot. Add the green olives, the remaining ½ teaspoon coriander and cumin and mint. Taste to adjust the seasonings and serve over couscous, garnished with a few mint leaves.
