Moroccan Stew

So, last night for Meatless Monday, I made Moroccan Stew.  I have to say, if you don't care for curry,  couscous this dish is not for you... My husband does not enjoy the consistency of couscous, so this was not a favorite.  I however enjoyed it, I might try it next time with rice instead of couscous because the flavors were great.  I adapted this recipe from Semi-Homemade Cooking Made Light cookbook.

Moroccan Stew
Serves 6. Prep time 10 min, cook time 30 min

1 32oz container Vegetable Broth
3/4 cup whole wheat couscous, uncooked
1 12oz bag frozen broccoli, carrots, cauliflower
1 can garbanzo beans, rinsed & drained
1/2 cup onion, rough chopped
1 tbs fresh lemon juice
3 tsp curry powder
2 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
Salt & pepper
1 cup dried apricots (optional)
In a large pot combine all of the ingredients. Bring it to a boil over medium-high heat. Then simmer for 30 min. Stir stew, remove from heat. Cover and let stand for 5 minutes.

I served our stew with a side salad... I hope you enjoy this low calorie, healthy, meatless monday dish as much as I did.
