This Moroccan-inspired stew with chickpeas, aubergine and butternut squash is such a great one-pot vegan dinner idea. It's healthy and protein-packed (chickpea obsession continues!) comfort food that will help you survive the coldest winter. Quick and easy to make, yet bursting with flavour and so comforting and satisfying. Al those Moroccan spices will definitely warm you up. Did I already say it's gluten-free, too? I'm feeling cosy just by writing about all these spices: cinnamon, nutmeg, paprika... Oh my...
Do not despair if you don't own a tajine clay pot. Yes, traditionally tajine is slow-cooked and should be quite dry, but I'm sure Moroccan people will forgive us. I just used a normal pot and added a bit more water. So it's more like a Moroccan curry, if I may. But I can assure you that the flavour and spices will be 100% authentic. And the secret ingredient is… dried apricots, of course.
