Pre Preparation

1

Drain the chickpeas.

3

Peel and crush garlic.

4

Wash and finely chop parsley for garnish.

Cooking

Cooking Moroccan Chickpeas Veggies Stew
1

Heat olive oil in a heavy bottom pot, add the sliced onions, saute till golden brown approx. 7-8 minutes on medium heat.

2

Add crushed garlic. Saute for a few minutes.

3

Add the chickpeas and spice mix saute for 1-2 minutes.

4

Add tomato puree and saute for 1-2 minutes.

5

Add around 1ltr of water, check seasoning, add the veggies cover and bring to a boil.

6

Reduce heat and cook on slow flame for 10-15 minutes till chickpeas and veggies are fully cooked and tender, add sliced olives and turn off the heat.

7

Note:  At this stage start cooking the Quinoa.

8

Remove into a serving bowl and garnish with chopped parsley.

Cooking the Quinoa
1

Add the rinsed Quinoa to 300ml water in a saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high heat, reduce heat to maintain a gentle simmer.

2

Cook until the Quinoa has absorbed all of the water, about 10 to 15 minutes. Reduce heat as time goes on to maintain a gentle simmer.

3

Remove the pot from heat, cover, and let the quinoa steam for 5 minutes. This step gives the Quinoa time to pop open into little curlicues, so it’s nice and fluffy.

4

Remove the lid and fluff the Quinoa with a fork. Season with salt, to taste.
