I was on New Day Northwest this morning. Margaret Larson is awesome, so nice! She invited me back when there is more progress to report.
The recipe is below:
Winter Vegetable Curry
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 med onion, Chopped
2 tsp Garam Masala
Salt & pepper to taste
1 x 28oz can of Whole Tomatoes
1 x 15oz can of chick peas , drained & rinsed
1 head cauiflower, cored and cut into florettes
1/2 cup raisins
6oz jar of small stuffed spanish olives
1 cup Cous Cous
5 oz baby spinach leaves
• Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook stirring occasionally until beginning to soften, 4-5 minutes. Add the seasonings and cook stirring until fragrant, 1 minute more
• Add the tomatoes and their liquid(crush the tomatoes with your hands as you put them in), chickpeas, cauliflower, raisins, olives and a 1/2 cup of water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer stirring occasionally until the cauliflower is tender and the liquid has thickened slightly, about 15 minutes. Fold in the spinach and cook until just wilted, 1-2 minutes more.
• Meanwhile place the cous cous in a large bowl mix in a little olive oil and add a small pinch of salt. Add 1 cup of boiling water, cover and let sit for 5 minutes, fluff with a fork.
• Serve stew over cous cous
