A one pot meal is the easiest method to achieve a nourishing meal loaded with fresh vegetables, beans, seasonings and dare I say it’s easy peasy! As a Gujarati, I am fully aware that we are yet to understand the concept of just one wholesome dish accompanied with rice or bread – we need many more varieties! But if this one dish has your carbs, proteins and fibre in one go – do we really need more?
I recommend, if you’re kids are young, start training them now!! It is not always necessary to have a full plate with a ton of varieties in order to get your nutrition – it’s about balancing them and filling up your stomach the right way.
This Moroccan inspired stew is a wonderful recipe that is extremely flexible – you can add whatever veggies you have in the fridge, leftover boiled beans, fresh or dried herbs – whatever takes your fancy.
This is also a substantial bowl for those on diets and the amount of oil can be well controlled.
The key to good flavoured food is very simple but requires much patience – low heat and long slow cooking. Add more garlic and herbs for an extra flavoured boost.
I also add a lemony-garlic yogurt sauce on top of the stew for a citrus cool flavour. The garlic cooked in ghee provides for the perfect amount of warmth.
