cous cous
baked onions and zucchinis (or fried if you're in a hurry)
peppercorns
thyme (if you've got any)
maybe corn?

sometimes preserved lemons

try serving with harissa sauce (if it's easy to get where you are) and maybe arrabiata sauce and the following:

2 Tbsp (15g) cornstarch

1/2 cup (120mL) cold water

1 Tbsp (15mL) sesame oil

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 1/2 cups (360mL) orange juice

1/2 cup (120mL) soy sauce

  • Mix cornstarch and cold water together in a jar, shake until blended. In a small saucepan over medium heat, heat oil and add garlic, saut' for one minute. Add orange juice, soy sauce and honey/sugar and heat. When thoroughly heated, add cornstarch mixture to sauce and turn heat up to bring about a slow rolling boil. Using a whisk, stir sauce frequently until it thickens. (adapted from http://www.evitamins.com/healthnotes.asp?ContentID=2555007)
