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.

Servings 2


  • 8 Moroccan mini-batbout
  • 1 medium onion
  • medium carrot (grated)
  • 2 small zucchini (grated)
  • 1/2 cup fresh mushroom (optional)
  • 1/2 cup red cabbage (chopped)
  • fresh parsley
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste


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.
