  • 3 cups cooked chickpeas ($0.51)
  • ½ tbsp apple cider vinegar ($0.03)
  • 1 tbsp tahini ($0.06)
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar ($0.08)
  • 1 tbsp fresh grated ginger ($0.03)
  • 1 tsp paprika ($0.10)
  • 1 tbsp cumin ($0.03)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon ($0.04)
  • ¾ tsp cloves ($0.03)
  • ¾ tsp nutmeg ($0.04)
  • ½ tsp cayenne (0.04)
  • 1-2 pods star anise ($0.12)
  • Sea salt & pepper to taste ($0.0)

For serving optional

  • 2 cups uncooked couscous ($0.84)
  • 2 ½ cups water ($0.00)
  • Cilantro or parsley, chopped ($0.04)

Instructions
 

  • Heat the olive oil in a pot on medium. Add chopped onions, garlic, and ginger. Sauté for another 2-3 minutes until the onions turn translucent.
  • Add in all other spices, except star anise pod. Sauté for another 1-2 minutes, until spices are fragrant.
  • Add tomato paste, apple cider vinegar, tahini, and diced tomatoes, and cook for another 1-2 minutes to combine.
  • Next, add in the vegetable broth, chopped figs, olives, and star anise pod. Stir together, and bring everything to a low simmer. Cover, and cook for 15 minutes.
  • In the meantime, bring 2 ½ cups of water to a boil. Stir in the couscous, cover, and remove from heat. Let the pot sit for 5 minutes, then uncover it and fluff it with a fork.
  • Add in the kale and cooked chickpeas to your pot. Simmer for another 5 minutes to soften the kale and combine all flavors.
  • Serve your Moroccan chickpea stew with a side of couscous and garnish with chopped cilantro or parsley.

Notes

  • Start small with seasonings, as it's easy to go overboard with spices like clove and nutmeg.
