need vegan Moroccan recipes!

Hi, I just moved to Marrakech and am looking for some vegan Moroccan recipes especially involving couscous. I want to take advantage of the area and use as many local vegetable, fruits, spices and grains as possible. There are tons of new foods here that I don't know what to do with! Like what the hell do you do with dates?

Any help would be great. I Googled and did an lj search and saw a few recipes like for couscous salad but am hoping for some more suggestions.

BTW being vegan here is challenging but not impossible. I will post more about that in "veganpeople".

Thanks in advance!

Replacing Egg Whites & Vegan (College Student) Runner

Hello all =)

I'm training for my third half marathon this May- only road block is that I am a college student, living on campus (with limited money!) So I'm trying to make do with what I can, getting decent yet yummy vegan food that will support my training. First question- I'm looking at this recipe: http://www.runnersworld.com/article/0,7120,s6-242-303-309-5205-0,00.html -what would be a nice HEALTHY substitute for egg whites? Preferably not Ener-G, as I can't find it. Also, other advice on healthy little things that are cheap, vegan and healthy for snacks? Or dishes you make that are healthy and good with protein and carbohydrates? (I also plan on doing protein shakes with soymilk and brown rice powder, as the protein options are somewhat limited in my cafeteria.) Thanks all!
