Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, smashed
  • 2 yellow onions, finely diced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1 turnip, peeled and cubed
  • 4 cups organic chicken stock
  • 2 cups canned chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup dried apricots, quartered
  • 1/2 cup dried figs, quartered
  • 1 red bell pepper, cubed

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper 
  • 2 cups couscous
  • 1/2 cup roasted pistachios, crushed

Directions

Heat the olive oil in large saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic, onions, cinnamon, cumin and turmeric. Saute until fragrant, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the turnips and saute for 5 minutes. Deglaze with the chicken stock. Add the chickpeas, apricots, figs, red bell pepper, squash and zucchini. Stir and let simmer until tender, about 15 minutes.
