Seven-vegetable couscous

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 pack Couscous
1 teaspoon Turmeric
2 mediums Onions, chopped
1 cup Finely shredded cabbage
1 medium Turnip, peeled and diced
1 medium Yellow summer squash,
\N \N Chopped in 1/4\" pieces
1½ cup Cooked garbanzo beans
1½ cup Diced ripe tomatoes
1 teaspoon Freshly grated ginger root
½ teaspoon Each: ground cumin,
\N \N Coriander, turmeric
\N x Water as needed

Prepare couscous according to package, stirring in couscous when you fluff it. Or try substituting brown rice. I was out of couscous last week, so I used brown rice with turmeric and it was wonderful! Saute onions until tender in a large saucepan or soup pot using your favorite oil substitute.

Add remaining ingredients except water. Cover and reduce heat to low.

Cook, stirring occasionally, for 15 to 20 min. Add water as needed to produce a moist, but not soupy stew. Serve over couscous or brown rice.

To make some of this easier, I used canned chickpeas. You could probably use canned tomatoes as well. One ingredient I wouldn't dare leave out is the fresh ginger root !! I store my ginger root in the freezer wrapped in plastic. When I want to use some, I take out a chunk, peel as much as I want to use and grate, it grates much easier when frozen.
