A healthy moroccan-spiced vegetarian stew made with chickpeas, butternut squash, and lentils! You'll love this filling meal!
1 teaspoon olive or coconut oil
1 white onion, chopped
6 cloves of garlic, crushed
2 teaspoons cumin
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 can (15 oz) chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1 can (28 oz) diced tomatoes
3 cups organic vegetable broth
1 pound butternut squash, diced large (about 4 cups)
1 cup green lentils, rinsed well
1/8 teaspoon saffron -- optional
juice of 1/2 a lemon
few dashes of red pepper flakes, if desired
1/3 cup chopped cilantro
a few basil leaves, chopped
Heat the oil in a medium pot over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic; cook a few minutes or until the onion becomes softened.
Next stir in cumin, cinnamon, and salt and pepper; cook for a few more minutes until spices are fragrant. Add chickpeas, tomatoes, broth, butternut squash, lentils, and saffron. Bring to a boil, then cover, reduce heat and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until butternut squash is tender and lentils are fully cooked.
Stir in lemon, red pepper flakes, cilantro, and basil. Taste and adjust seasonings as necessary. Garnish with extra cilantro and greek yogurt, if desired. I like serving mine with spinach. Makes 4 servings - about 2 cups each.
If you don't have saffron, feel free to leave it out! The stew will still be delicious.
Instead of butternut squash, you can use sweet potatoes or acorn squash.
I like to buy already-cut up butternut squash for ease; you can usually find it at Trader Joe's.
