Thread: Moroccan Slow Cooker Stew

  1. #1

    Default Moroccan Slow Cooker Stew

    This is a recipe from the WW site. I modified it for what I had in the house.
    It was really good and very filling. I'm guessing a whole squash must yield a lot more than the frozen bag I had for the servings to be that many more.

    Here's the original recipe:
    Moroccan Slow Cooker Stew
    Ingredients
    1 small onion, chopped
    1 medium garlic clove, minced
    1 medium butternut squash, peeled, seeded and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
    1 cup carrot, baby
    1 cup canned crushed tomatoes
    1/2 cup vegetable broth
    1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
    1/2 tsp ground cumin
    1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
    15 oz canned chickpeas, rinsed and drained
    1/2 tsp table salt
    Directions
    Coat a small pot with cooking spray. Add onion and garlic; sauté for 5 minutes.
    Place squash in a 3-quart or larger slow cooker (crock pot). Add onion and garlic, carrots, tomatoes, broth, cinnamon, cumin and red pepper flakes. Cover and turn on to low heat; simmer for 6 hours.
    Add chickpeas and salt. Stir, cover and heat for 5 minutes. Yields about 1 1/3 cups per serving.

    Serves | 6
    POINTS per serving | 4

    Here's my modified version:
    Moroccan Slow Cooker Stew (modified)
    Ingredients
    1/2 cup frozen chopped onion (.5)
    1 medium garlic clove, minced (0)
    2 cups frozen butternut squash cubes (1)
    1 cup baby carrots, cut in half (0)
    15oz can petite diced tomatoes (0)
    1/4 tsp ground cinnamon (0)
    1/2 tsp ground cumin (0)
    1/2 tsp red pepper flakes (0)
    15 oz canned chickpeas, rinsed and drained (6)
    Directions
    Coat a small crockpot with cooking spray. (I used the Crockette 1 qt size)
    Mix all ingredients except chickpeas in a bowl to combine.
    Place in small crockpot. Cover and simmer for 3-4 hours.
    Add chickpeas. Stir, cover and heat for 5 minutes. Yields about 2 cups per serving.

    Serves | 2 (VERY LARGE SERVINGS)
    POINTS per serving | 4

    I add a tsp of olive oil when serving to get in a serving of healthy fats.

    I agree, tried this previous and is delicious. It does tend to be on spicy side, okay with me though, so you may want to definitely be careful with the red pepper flakes. I also eliminated the chickpeas and substituted parsnips and yellow peppers. Only because I had a few leftover parsnips & peppers that I wanted to use up.

    I made this just like the WW recipe said, and it was very, very good. Way sweeter than I thought it would be. However, when I put it into Mastercook it came out at 5 pps instead of 4. But it is incredibly filling and has 12 g of fiber, so 5 points is a bargain.

    Lisa, Chickpeas are another name for Garbonzo Beans. You may have seen them on salad bars.

    I made the stew today and enjoyed it. It is very filling and a flavor treat. I love Moroccan cuisine. Chick peas are very healthy and is an adequate source of protein as a vegetarian dish. The sweetness must be from the squash. I will be taking the recipe to my son's for Xmas since he and his wife are vegetarians.
