Moroccan Stew with CouscousI was looking forward to this recipe since I'd tried a Moroccan stew a few months ago that was really tasty, and it felt like time to try the stew again.
We used orange and red peppers, and I added a few sun-dried tomatoes. We didn't have all the spices available so I just used lots of cumin, some ginger, 4 cloves of garlic, tumeric and cinnamon. The raisins were omitted and we added chopped cashews to the whole wheat couscous.
It was pretty bland despite the amount of cumin, garlic and tumeric. As I was eating, I remembered that the other recipe I tried used canned tomatoes, which would have been a great addition to the flavour. There's a lot left over for lunch tomorrow, and I will probably add salt and garlic to bump the flavour up a bit.
What I think would have improved this recipe: more salt (says the salt-a-holic), cooking vegetables and/or couscous in vegetable broth, adding tomatoes and more garlic.
According to my calendar, tomorrow is Friday - anyone have a recipe they'd like to share for next week? Don't be shy!
