My auntie gave us a Godin melting pot as a ‘move in together’ present, and I hadn’t used it up to now (shame on me!). But now, I can share the big première with you guys.
I love stews, but they’re mostly made with meat, so I looked for inspiration in another culture. In Northern Africa they use a lot of chickpeas, and I really like those, so a Moroccan stew it was! I love the sweet, spicy taste of this dish, and you will too, probably!
