Ok, so Spring is supposed to be here by now, but the weather gods clearly have other ideas. Most of us will probably dream of warmer days and travels to far-flung places right now. This will often bring with it a craving for flavoursome food that reminds us of holidays, adventures and sunshine. Since, however, it still feels somewhat too cold for a crisp (and cold!) salad, we need something a little more warming. And a Moroccan spiced stew is just the thing! Packed full of veggie goodness and flavours, this stew is guaranteed to warm you up and transport you to warmer climes whilst waiting for Spring to finally make an appearance.
