Moroccan Stuffed Batbout
There are different names and variations to Moroccan Batbout across the country. It is also called Mkhamer or Matlou’.
It can be served plain along with olive oil, butter, and honey in the breakfast, as it is a great partner for Moroccan Tagines.
There are also different shapes and sizes of Batbout. In this recipe, we will use small batbout disks that can be served as bite-sized sandwiches.
This incredibly delicious stuffed batbout is a must-have side dish during Ramadan that you will see on the iftaar or fast-breaking meal, in the majority of Moroccan tables.
There are many fillings you can try for this mini-batbout. In this article, we will use a stuffing that is one of my favorites: mini batbout stuffed with veggies and mushroom
Vegan Moroccan Stuffed Batbout
- 8 Moroccan mini-batbout

- 2 small zucchini (grated)

- 1/2 cup red cabbage (chopped)
- fresh parsley

Prepare the filling:
- Put olive oil in a skillet or a pan and place it over medium to low heat. Add chopped onion and cook it for 2 minutes. Then add chopped mushroom and grated garlic and cook for 3 minutes whisking from time to time.
- Add grated carrot and zucchini and cook for another 5 minutes. Then add chopped parsley, salt, and pepper.Cook for an extra 10 minutes until all the ingredients are perfectly mixed.
- Add chopped red cabbage right before turning off the heat. It remains crunchy, giving a great texture to the mixture.Let the mix cool down until the filling time.
Stuff the batbout
- In case you are using frozen batbout, make sure to cover them with a kitchen towel and set them aside until they are fresh and ready to be stuffed.I do recommend opening the mini-batbout before freezing them. If it is not the case, then gently cut the edge of the batbout using a sharp knife to create a pocket for filling.
- Fill every batbout with 3 to 4 teaspoons of the stuffing according to their sizes.
- Serve immediately as a perfect snack or store it in the fridge till serving time.
