North African Moroccan Bean & Pepper Vegetarian Stew

Image by Favored1
With our family having allergies to garlic and onions, sometimes it’s hard to find ingredients to switch with them and still have the recipe turn out tasting good. 

When I discovered a Moroccan Stew recipe I saw how I could easily make substitutions and still end up with a savory meal that is healthy and rich in antioxidants. My Moroccan Bean and Pepper Vegetarian Stew recipe contains cinnamon and ginger, two of the super antioxidants and it’s also diabetic friendly. 

This one pot stew is easy to make, boasts a great taste while bursting with color, and it goes a long way. Try serving it alone or over brown rice.   

You will need: large stock pot with cover, knife, measuring cup, large spoon

What to use in place of garlic or onions:

If you have garlic or onion allergies, substitute another aromatic vegetable such as celery in the recipe. 

For a sweet or flowery taste saut fennel. It can also be used as a garnish.

Squeeze lemon juice on food in place of salt. 

Try Japanese radish (daikon) with mushroom powder for a milder flavor.

Use a small amount of Indian spice called asafetida. Although it has a strong aroma, it mellows as it cooks.
