I made this earlier this week:

Moroccan Chickpea-and-Vegetable Stew

1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 cups (1/2-inch) cubed zucchini
1 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped carrot
1 tablespoon bottled minced garlic
1 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
2 tablespoons raisins
1 1/4 teaspoons ground ginger
1 1/4 teaspoons ground cumin
3/4 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 (15 1/2-ounce) cans chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained
1 (14.5-ounce) can no-salt-added stewed tomatoes, undrained
1 1/2 cups water
1 cup uncooked couscous

It was AMAZING. I didn't follow the recipe exactly, just spiced it to taste. I only had Italian diced canned tomatoes so I used those instead of fresh, and I didn't have any chicken broth, so the stew was based on the flavored canned tomato juice haha. I also didn't have coriander, or ginger, but I did add Garam Masala which is a really good eastern spice mix. I added in some peanut butter for extra protein and to get that Morroccan flavor, and fresh cilantro. I've been eating it on top of cous cous all week. By far one of the best dishes I've ever made! Absolutely delicious!!
