Servings: 4
Total Time: 45 minutes
Recipe by: Frankie


2 TBSP olive oil
1 medium red onion, diced
1 yellow bell pepper, seeded and chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 TBSP freshly minced ginger
2 TBSP tomato paste
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp turmeric
salt & pepper
2 medium carrots, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch thick slices
8 ounces sweet potato, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
2 cups vegetable broth
1 1/2 cups Moroccan couscous
1/2 TBSP unsalted butter
1/2 cup frozen peas
1 medium zucchini, cut into 1/4-inch thick half moons
1/2 cup sliced green olives


1. Heat the oil in a dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add the onion and bell pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes.

2. Add the garlic and ginger and cook until fragrant, about 10 seconds. Add the tomato paste, cinnamon, cumin, cayenne, turmeric, 1 tsp salt, and 1/2 tsp pepper and stir to combine. Add the carrot and sweet potato and stir to coat in the spices. Pour in the vegetable broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer until the carrots and potatoes are tender, about 25 minutes.

3. In a separate medium size saucepan add 2 cups water, 1/4 tsp salt, and 1/4 tsp pepper and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Add the couscous and butter and return to a boil. Cover the pan and take off the heat, let sit for 5 minutes.

4. Stir the peas and zucchini into the dutch oven with the vegetables and simmer, uncovered, over medium heat for about 5 minutes or until zucchini is tender. Stir in the green olives and season with salt & pepper to taste.

5. Serve the vegetables over the steamed couscous.
