Rockin’ Moroccan Stew


2 tsp olive oil

½ cup each diced celery and chopped green bell pepper
1 clove garlic, minced
3 cups vegetable broth
3 cups peeled, cubed sweet potatoes
1 can (19 oz) tomatoes, drained and cut up

1 tbsp lemon juice

2 tsp grated ginger root
1 tsp each ground cumin, curry powder, ground coriander, and chili powder
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp black pepper
¼ cup raisins


  • Heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onions, celery, green pepper, and garlic.
  • Cook and stir until vegetables begin to soften, about 3 minutes.
  • Add all remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer covered for 20 minutes.

Teresa’s notes

  • When not in a nut-free environment (like the Art Gallery of Burlington), add 2 tbsp of peanut butter at the end.
  • You can also add fresh cilantro at the end.
