Moroccan Chickpea and Vegetable Stew with Couscous

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 14 mins

This is delicious stew. Very flavorful from the spices, but not too spicy, just right. There is no meat in it, and you most likely won't miss it, as the chickpeas are very "meaty" themselves. But I don't see why you couldn't add some meat if you really wanted to. It also goes from prep to table in about 30 minutes, great for weeknight dinners. From Cooking Light.

This is very good! Not as juicy as I expected, but still very good. I added a pinch of cayenne and about 1 Tbs f/f feta to each serving. Using whole wheat couscous, this is 7 WW pts/serving, and a dish that works with the "Simply Filling Technique" (old Core program). A fabulous keeper! Thanks for sharing.
