This was delicious! Although I couldn't find any turmeric. I stayed with a French-Algerian couple on an organic farm in France and this recipe really took me back!

So delicious and very low calorie with no added fat! I was skeptical at first because I think it's best to add vegetable stock instead of water to my soups and stews, but I think this would turn out well with all water too (I actually ended up adding 1/3 stock and 2/3 water, for a total of 6 cups liquid). Instead of serving this with couscous I served it on its own with a spoon (if you include couscous I think no. of servings should be upped to 6). Also I added a bit less zucchini (1 large) and squash (2 medium), but if you are fond of those vegetables you'll probably want to include the recommended amount. I think the dash of cinnamon (in the directions but not in the list of ingredients as of this writing) was key and should be included. Thanks very much for this awesome and extremely healthy recipe!

We liked this! I wasn't sure how it would turn out, since I didn't add in the zucchini or squash (not big fans of those). I ended up adding more liquid to make up for it. This worked well in my pressure cooker ... I used 1/2 cup dried garbanzo beans (soaked and cooked) and added them in at the same time as the vegetables. I cooked it at high pressure for 15 minutes and it was perfect.
