Vegan Moroccan Chickpea Stew/Gluten Free Chickpea Stew

I have been cooking from Moroccan cuisine since a while coz of my neighbour friend. She is a Moroccan and her grandma makes traditional Moroccan foods with an ease. Obviously whenever i get some free time, i dont forget to visit my neighbour to learn some Moroccan dishes from my friend or else from her grandma. I have learned Couscous, a traditional Moroccan dish from her which is our family favourite since ever i tried at home. Most of the Moroccan dishes calls for easy cooking method and their cooking style involves spices like cumin,paprika, coriander etc. If your pantry have cumin, coriander, cinnamon like spices you can dish out some succulent Moroccan dishes easily. My today's recipe is a simple stew which you can serve very well along with cooked rice or else with cooked couscous grains. If you want to serve this stew in a healthy way, serve this delicious stew along with quinoa or bulgur. With simple ingredients and cooked chickpeas, this stew makes an excellent meal to serve either for lunch or dinner.

Delicious stew. I love Moroccan dishes as their spices are so similar to what we use. Lucky you can learn so much about the cuisine from your neighbor.

It's always great to learn recipes directly from someone than to follow cookbooks or videos where the authenticity may be questionable. That looks like a wonderful meal!
