Stuffed Onions - Moroccan Style

Recipe by Carianne

Another fantastic find from the Institute fo Cancer Research. Allicin, found in onions, is apparently a good cancer-fighter. Vegetarian and vegan; 3 WW points each.

This was yummy! I halved the recipe and used leftover yellow rice. I left out he chickpeas, and this was still full of flavor! Thanks Carianne for posting this!
