Moroccan Chickpea Stew

Moroccan Chickpea Stew

This is based on a YAWYE recipe.  Really easy to make & very tasty.   Last time we had this, I made it first thing in the morning & popped it into the slow cooker on low until lunch-time.

DD2(2) loves it, I haven’t given it to DD1 yet, but I’m sure she’ll like it.

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled & crushed
  • 2 medium onions, peeled & sliced
  • 1 bunch fresh coriander (about 10g), roughly chopped
  • about 10g fresh mint, roughly chopped
  • 1 tsp chilli powder (I use mild when giving it to the kids)
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 0.5 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 can chopped tomatoes
  • 1 can chickpeas
  • 75g dried apricots, chopped
  • 25g blanched almonds
  • half an organic low-salt stock cube

to serve

  • rice or couscous
  • crunchy salad or lots of steamed green veg

Instructions

  1. Put the oil, garlic, onions, herbs and spices in a large pan. Place over a medium heat & cook for 5 mins.
  2. Add all the remaining ingredients, then refil the empty tomato can with cold water & pour into the pan.
  3. Bring to the boil, reduce the heat & simmer for 25-30mins.
