My hubby and 5 year old daughter both loved it, and I’m about to go back for thirds….
1 Tbls olive oil
1 large onion, diced (2 cups)
4 cloves garlic, minced (4 tsp)
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp cinnamon
3 tsp McCormick Moroccan Seasoning (ras al hanout) (if my little town grocery store carries it, I’m sure yours does, too.)
1 28oz can crushed tomatoes
2 15oz cans chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1 cup uncooked couscous
1 block frozen spinach, somewhat thawed and drained
1 cup raisins
1/4 cup lemon juice
Optional toppers: salted peanuts, cilantro
Stir spinach, raisins and lemon juice into chickpea mixture, simmer for 5 more minutes.
Serve over couscous with peanuts and cilantro for garnish.
Yield: 6-8 Servings
