Rockin' Moroccan Stew

This is from one of the Looney Spoons cookbooks and is a favorite of ours. I thought it would be yummy with Sam's Moroccan Couscous :)

2 tsp olive oil
1 cup chopped onions
1/2 cup each diced celery and chopped green bell pepper
1 clove garlic, minced
3 cups vegetable stock
3 cups peeled, cubed sweet potatoes (I use yams)
1 can (19 oz) diced tomatoes, drained
1 can (19 oz) chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp grated ginger
1 tsp each ground cumin, curry powder, ground coriander, and chili powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 cup raisins
2 tsp each peanut butter and chopped, fresh cilantro

Heat olive oil in large saucepan or pot over med-high heat. Add onions, celery, green pepper, and garlic. Cook and stir until vegetables begin to soften, about 3 minutes.

Add all remaining ingredients, except raisins, peanut butter and cilantro. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, about 20 minutes.

Stir in raisins, peanut butter and cilantro. Mix well. Simmer for 5 more minutes.

Enjoy!

I have made this a couple of times and it is a family favourite. I do add a tsp of cinnamon when I am adding the other spice which works great in this recipe.

My husband had a photocopy of this and it was disposed of, somehow. Thanks for posting the whole thing so we don't have to track it down!
