Tajins and pastillas are true symbols of Moroccan food.  Moroccan cuisine has retained its traditionalism. In a broad sense Moroccan food is a part of Mediterranean cuisine. Various influences like Arabs, Moors can be traced in their food. The food here largely depends on seasonal and local produce. 
The people are diet conscious and give a lot of importance to the use of fresh vegetables like carrots, cabbage, eggplant, pumpkin, zucchini, onions, peppers etc. which not only add a lot of colour but also plenty of nutrients to the dishes. They also use plenty of lentils and beans whereas meat is used  in moderation.  They do use plenty of Atlantic fish and seafood. Perhaps it is a result of the country having the longest coastline among other Arab countries.
