Moroccan Black Bean Stew


You can tell it's fall by looking at my dinner. This is the Moroccan Black Bean Stew recipe from The Vegan Family cookbook. It was so simple to throw together. I added 2 TB of tomato paste and some cumin (which I love!) and I decreased the sugar to 1 tsp. Came out just perfect. Looking back I should have added ras al hanout as well which is a Moroccan spice blend. Next time! This was very warming and tasty served on a bed of rice with a dollop of harissa (North African chili paste) on top. This will also go well with couscous or quinoa.

Rice is pretty much a staple in my diet. I could literally eat it every day and hardly ever tire of it. This dish is exactly how I like to eat: rice, accompanied with chunky veggies, some sort of legume(s) spices/herbs, and a bit of a spicy kick. I must make a bowl of this for me later this week!

Made this the other night and my family loved it. My non vegan sister asked for the recipe and sent it to her son!
Thank you for this easy and delicious meal.
