Stewed Vegetables

  1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, brown the onions in the oil. Add the garlic and spices and cook for 1 minute. Transfer to the slow cooker and add the remaining ingredients except for the cilantro. Stir well. Season with salt and pepper. Cover and cook on High for 5 hours.


  1. At the last moment, stir the cilantro into the stew. Remove 2 1/2 cups (625 ml) of hot broth from the slow cooker and pour into a bowl. Stir in the couscous and oil. Cover and let rest for 5 minutes. Fluff the couscous with a fork.
  2. If the slow cooker has been on Warm, microwave the broth for a few minutes until hot before adding the couscous (the couscous will not cook in warm broth). Serve the couscous with the vegetables and chickpeas.
