Moroccan Stew

Moroccan Stew is a staple in our house. Amazing flavours, warm, nutritious and easy to make. Forever Fit, Duncan, BC

Amazing Moroccan Stew is.....amazing!  It is without a doubt my favourite recipe : )

With a healthy dose of veggies, protein and complex carbs, this stew is easy to serve to the health conscious people in your life but it is also a big hit with the fussy people in your life. I have only heard of one person in over 10 years who did not care for it. The exotic flavours in this amazing stew make it great as a mid week meal for your family as well as for entertaining. 

The stew is made in one pot so it is easy and quick to put together. We make a very large batch, so we have lots of leftovers making tomorrow night's meal easy with plenty left over for lunch too. I love the flexibility with the ingredients of Moroccan food. If I don't have carrots, I might throw in some cauliflower. Cauliflower tastes great with the seasonings of curry and cumin. Play with the ingredients and make it your own. I hope you will enjoy this meal as much as we do : )
