Ingredients for Moroccan Chickpea Stew


 

Variations

Moroccan cuisine is known for its beautiful aromatic spice, colour and flavour combinations. From hearty tagines and harira to fluffy herbed couscous and crunchy-topped b’stilla. Don’t worry if you don’t have a tagine, you can use the stove top method, or even better, the slow cooker method!

If you like a bit more spice you can add more chilli or even Harissa, to give this dish a kick. We like it spicy so we added some harissa seasoning. If you haven’t tried it, or even heard of it before, harissa is a North African hot chilli paste and it is another one of our favourite ingredients. It is made mostly of roasted red peppers and you can buy tubes or jars of it in the  supermarkets.

This recipe is very versatile, you can add chicken for the meat lovers at your table! But it really doesn’t need it and the health benefits of having a few meatless meals each week are huge! Meatless doesn’t have to be tasteless and with the spices in this stew, it certainly isn’t lacking in taste! Serve with lemon herb and almond couscous!
