I am a big fan of moroccan cuisine and stew is great with root vegetables!
Sweet potato, carrots, onion, tomato – diced
Spices – cinnamon, turmeric powder, red chilly powder, cumin powder, corriander powder
Almond milk (optional)
Quinoa – cooked as per instructions
Add olive oil to a pan, throw in the cinnamon stick and raisins. Saute for a few seconds.
Add the onion and garlic and stir for a couple of minutes till onion softens.
Add the remaining spices and a splash of water to make sure the spices don’t burn.
Toss around and throw in the rest of the vegetables and salt.
Cover and cook until veggies are soft.
Add the grapefruit/tangerine with juice (this is purely optional). I had some in hand and I love the bittersweet taste of the grapefruit.
Add the almond milk for a creamy texture.
Cook until everything combines.
Season with cilantro.
Place the cooked quinoa on a plate and top it with the stew.
Serve hot! Enjoy!
