Briouates are samosas-shaped appetizers in Morocco, stuffed with seasoned ingredients such as vegetables or seafood or meat (white or red) or cheese. .
There are savoury versions but also sweet versions such briouates bellouz (sweet briouates with almond paste, fried then soaked in honey), briouates bel roz (briouates with a sort of rice pudding cinnamon and orange-blossom scented)..
We shape these things either in triangle style (briouates) or roll-style (sbiaat referring to fingers). They’re very convenients during Ramadan, or when we have guests. Sometimes, they’re made or bought to be served as snacks.

For about 16 small briouates
Prep : 20 min - Cooking time: 20 min
350 gminced beef, preferably lean
½ cup cilantro and parsley, finely chopped
1 or 2 red peppers/capsicum or chopped red and green
2 leaves of mint 
1 onion, medium
300 g brik sheets
2 tbsp ofolive oil
1 or 2 cloves garlic, crushed
1tsp harissa or hot pepper
A hint of cinnamon powder 
2 tbsp of sweet paprika
1 tbsp ground cumin
Salt and pepper
Gherkins or green olives, thinly sliced
50g of grated cheese, like Edam, parmesan or other melting cheese
50g melted butter for the brik sheets
¼ cup vegetable oil to cook briouates


In a skillet, fry the onions and peppers in olive oil. Cover to cook. Stir occasionally. Feel free to add 2 tbsp of water to help them cook through.

Add chopped garlicground beef and remaining spices and half the herbs (thyme too if you fancy)Cook about 10minutes over low heat until reduced. Set aside to cool before useStir in cheesethe remaining herbs and diced picklesor green olives.

Cut the brik sheets into strips or triangles (depending which shape of brik sheet you bought). Brush some butter and shape briouates (triangles) or sbiaats (spring rolls, rolls).

Place briouates on a greased or oiled baking sheetBrush each piece with oil and bake in a hot oven (180-200 degreesCuntil goldenTurn them the other way to get a nice colour  on all sidesYou can also fry them.

This type of appetizers freezes well but before baking/frying them.  You just need to place them in a hot oven straight from the freezer.
Note: think of the brik sheets as a good alternative to puff pasty if you are health-conscious.

Shaping Briouates/triangles the way we shape samosas or the Honour Flag
Shaping squares stuffed with the same mixture plus some cooked wheat (replace with rice or chinese vermicelli if you like)
Make rolls (or sbiaats), if triangles are not your thing
Roll is ready, sealed with a bit of flour mixed with a bit of water to obtian a paste, the sealed edge should be at the bottom
