Moroccan Chickpea Carrot Stew

This hearty and healthy Moroccan Chickpea Carrot Stew is vegan, gluten-free, and dairy-free.

Ingredients

  • 1 onion chopped
  • 4 Cloves Garlic, finely chopped or pressed
  • 3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 1 1/4 Teaspoons Salt or to taste
  • 1 Teaspoon Ginger
  • 1 Teaspoon Turmeric
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
  • 1/8 Teaspoon Ras el Hanout or more to taste (optional)
  • 2 or 3 Tablespoons Chopped Parsley or Cilantro
  • 4 or 5 Carrots, peeled and cut into 1/4" thick sticks
  • 2-3 Cups Vegetable or Chicken Broth
  • 2 Cups Cooked or Canned Chickpeas, drained
  • 2 to 3 Teaspoons Honey
  • 1/4 Cup Golden Raisins, optional

Instructions

    1. In the base of a tagine or in a large skillet with a lid, saute the onions and garlic in the olive oil over low heat for several minutes. Add the spices, parsley or cilantro, the carrots and the broth.
    2. Cover and simmer over medium-low heat until the carrots are cooked to desired tenderness. In a skillet this may take up to 25 minutes; in a tagine a bit longer.
    3. When the carrots are cooked, stir in the honey and add the chickpeas and raisins (if using). Continue simmering until the chickpeas are heated through and the sauce is reduced and thick. Taste, adjust seasoning if desired, and serve.

Notes

  1. I have also used a pressure cooker with dried chickpeas that had been soaked overnight. I cooked the beans for 20 minutes, then did a natural release and added the carrots for 5 minutes.
