Pinterest challenge: sweet potato and chickpea moroccan style stew

Sweet potato and chickpea moroccan style stew recipeI have made this vegetarian stew before (technically Joni made it since I was not up for cooking that day) and I fell in love with it. Its full of contrasting flavour, not much prep and it's very easy to serve to babies. I made it again few days ago and it was as before very enjoyable meal (more for me than Joni as he prefers meat).Sweet potato and chickpea moroccan style stew recipeSWEET POTATO AND CHICKPEA MOROCCAN STEW practically copied from vegan Lauren Caris Cooks

When it comes to removing pomegranate seeds it is pain in the butt. But it is totally worth it for this meal! My friend suggested easer method how to remove pomegranate seeds (apparently she learned it from YouTube). Remove the top and bottom with knife. Lightly slice the sides like an orange. Carefully "peal off" the skin and there we go seeds will come out in more orderly fashion!  Sweet potato and chickpea moroccan style stew recipe4. to serve dish couscous into the bowl, then the stew.
