Rockin' Moroccan Stew
Nov 27, 2020
A warm bowl of vegetable packed stew is the best way to enjoy a hearty serving of vegetables on a cold winter day. This classic moroccan stew gets a boost of protein from chicken!
Our version of Rockin Moroccan Stew was inspired by a version shared on my friend Jesse's blog and was adapted from Janet and Greta at Looneyspoons. Substitute the chicken for chickpeas for a vegan and vegetarian alternative!
