125 grams couscous
1 1/4 cups vegetable stock
30 grams dry roasted almonds, roughly chopped

Moroccan Vegetables:
2 tbs olive oil
1 small onion, sliced into thin wedges
1/2 tsp fresh finely diced ginger
1/2 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp cinnamon (use a stick instead for better results)
2 carrots, roughly chopped
1/4 lb potatoes, thickly diced
300 g acorn squash, skinned, seeded and thickly diced
3/4 cups chickpeas (1/2 can)
25 g raisins
25 g dried apricots, chopped in half
200 ml vegetable broth
1/2 tbs harrisa paste
1/2 tbs lemon juice
1 tbs fresh parsley, roughly chopped
1 tbs fresh coriander, roughly chopped

Recipe Directions for AUSTIN Moroccan Vegetables w/ Almond Couscous

  1. Heat the oil in a large heavy-based frypan. Add the onion and cook for 3-4 minutes over medium heat until soft.

  2. Add the ginger, turmeric, cayenne and cinnamon stick, cook over a medium-low heat for 1 minute until fragrant.

  3. Add the vegetables, chickpeas, sultanas and apricots; cook for a further 1-2 minutes coating the vegetables well with the oil and spices.

  4. Add the vegetable broth and bring to a gentle simmer; simmer partly covered for 25-30 minutes until vegetables are soft and the pumpkin is beginning to break up.

  5. Meanwhile prepare the couscous by bringing the vegetable broth to the boil in a medium saucepan; add the couscous and stir. Place a lid on the saucepan and remove from the heat; set aside for 2-3 minutes. Fluff the couscous grains with a fork, tossing through a little olive oil and the chopped almonds. Keep warm until serving.

  6. Once the stew is cooked add the harrisa paste and lemon juice; stir through.

  7. Add the parsley and coriander, reserving a little for garnish. Gently toss through and serve immediately accompanied with warm couscous.
