directions

  • Keep the vegetables chunky and about the same size so they’ll be done at the same time.
  • In a dry, small Dutch oven over medium heat, toast the saffron for 1 minute or until fragrant.
  • Stir in the turmeric, cinnamon stick, chile and stock. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Add the onion, carrots, parsnips, and squash. Continue simmering, covered (10 minutes). Add the zucchini and tomatoes, cover and simmer until all the vegetables are just tender, about another 5 minutes (you may need to raise the heat to return the broth to a simmer).
  • When the vegetables are tender, stir in the chickpeas, 1/2 tsp salt, the turkey, raisins and cilantro. Remove the pot from the heat and let sit covered until the couscous has been made. Adjust the seasonings if needed.
  • In a medium saucepan over high heat, bring 1 ­3/4 cups water to a boil, along with 1 tsp salt and 1 tbsp butter.
  • Stir in the couscous, cover tightly, remove from the heat and let sit for 5 minutes.
  • Cut the remaining 1 tbsp butter into small pieces and scatter them over the couscous. Cover and let sit for 3 minutes. Fluff with a fork.
  • To serve, mound a large spoonful of the couscous into a shallow soup bowl and ladle the turkey, vegetables and broth over it. Serve with the harissa or sambal oelek on the side.

    This is a delicious meal and can be changed just a bit, I added potatoes, 1/4 cup of Pearl Barley, I also added 1/2 tsp of Cumin and substituted red pepper flakes vs the cut up hot pepper just a pinch of that. This is a great way to use up Christmas turkey. This recipe is one you can add to or take away pieces you don't really have a taste for. Thanks to Broke Guy for posting this. I also used dried cranberries instead of the raisins.
