Recipe Ingredients for Moroccan Chickpeas and Zucchini

1 tsp olive oil
1 yellow onion, thinly sliced
6 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp fresh ginger, minced
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1/20 oz or 2 bay leaves
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
2 c vegetable broth
1 c baby carrots
2 zucchini, sliced
25 oz diced tomatoes
25 oz chickpeas, drained and rinsed
3 tbsp fresh mint, chopped

Recipe Directions for Moroccan Chickpeas and Zucchini

  1. Preheat a 4-qt pot over medium-high heat. Saute the onions in the oil until translucent, about 4 minutes. Use a little nonstick cooking spray or broth if needed. Add the garlic, ginger, and red pepper flakes, and saute for another minute.

  2. Add the remaining spices and salt, and saute for about 30 seconds. Deglaze the pot with the vegetable broth and mix in the carrots. Cover the pot and bring to a boil. Once boiling, lower the heat to a simmer and cook for about 10 minutes. Add the zucchini and tomatoes. Mix in the chickpeas.

  3. Cover the pot and bring to a slow boil. Cook for about 15 minutes. hen adjust the lid so that there's some room for steam to escape. Cook for another 15 minutes; the liquid should reduce slightly. Add the mint, if using, and let sit for about 10 minutes to allow the flavors to meld. Remove the bay leaves and taste for salt.

  4. Serve over couscous and garnish with mint.
