Moroccan Vegetable Stew

Total Time

An easy flavorful dish, I like to serve this with couscous mixed with lots of finely chopped parsley and a dish of preserved lemons on the side. Reheats well.If you like the red peppers with more crunch, add them to the dish when you put the zucchini in.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a good size Dutch oven fry the onion, garlic, carrot, pepper and celery in the olive oil for 1 to 2 minutes.
  2. Add all the dry spices and stir-fry this for 1 minute more.
  3. To this add the stock and the tomatoes, simmer for 10-15 minutes.
  4. Then add the chickpeas, zucchini and the olives, bring to a simmer, cover and cook until the zucchini is cooked, probably another 10-15 minutes Add lemon juice, taste, stir in the almonds and serve.

As I sit eating this for lunch at work I had to add a review. This is outstanding. I made a pot and froze it and it held up great. I have made this recipe about 10 times (no almonds) and it is my favorite lunchtime soup. The mix of spices is just right and the soup has a beautiful golden yellow color. This last time I added tofu and it took on the flavors of the spices nicely. In my recipebook this is labeled "guestworthy".

This is an easy and fairly quick dish to prepare. The flavor is excellent. I used a medley of red, green and yellow peppers and did not use the olives. I did have to add more liquid as it simmered. Pets, thank you for sharing this delicious recipe!

I've made this stew three times and everyone has loved it. I just noticed that the last time, I added about four times the normal amount of sliced almonds. This makes it a thicker stew, but it was still delicious.
