Vegan Veggie Loaded Moroccan Stew
Wintery days beg for something hearty and warm to fill little bellies! This Vegan Moroccan Stew is just what frozen tootsies need after a playday in the snow – it’s delicious and loaded to the brim with veggies to create a balanced, healthy family dinner. Bundle up and get the bowls ready because — Baby, it’s cold outside.
I love Moroccan cuisine and all the colorful flavors it brings to table, so I wanted to create a baby-friendly, healthy family dinner that’s easy to cook, savory, and truly encompasses the taste of Morocco. Introducing new spices in a variety of foods will help ease your little ones into their grown-up palettes, as well as (hopefully) help curb picky eating habits in the future.
This stew offers so many different textures and tastes — potatoes, carrots, kale, cumin, coriander, and more — giving baby a dish to dive into and explore! It’s packed with nutritious protein from the chickpeas, vitamin A, C, K, and potassium from the veggies. All this in a one-pot meal.
I use the Dunnes Stores tinned tomatoes in this family dinner recipe because, firstly, it’s easy! But did you know that canned tomatoes contain more lycopene than fresh tomatoes? Lycopene is antioxidant found in pink and red fruit that aids heart health, possibly lowers the risk of cancer, and even provides sun protection. Fresh tomatoes, on the other hand, contain higher levels of vitamin C and other essentials. Depending on your recipe, it’s a good idea to alternate between canned and fresh in order to grab all the goodies tomatoes have to offer!
This stew is perfect for school thermos packing, too, so make sure to cook extras! Your family (and their bellies) will thank you!
All of the ingredients in this Vegan Moroccan Stew are inexpensive and easily available. No crazy produce, and it’s all available in your local Dunnes Stores.
