Morrocan Stew, SCD

Adapted to SCD from several recipes online. Absolutely delicious IMO! In spite of some of the ingredients it's neither sweet nor hot but just very flavorful. Adapt as you like per your own tolerances, however, in my opinion the raisin are essential for flavoring. You can remove them if you don't want to eat them but use their flavor.

Moroccan Stew
Serves: 4 to 6


⅓ cup olive oil
1 cup coarsely chopped onion
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon turmeric
½ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon chipotle powder (cayenne will work)
½ teaspoon paprika
pinch of saffron
1 tsp salt
1 cup sliced carrots
4 cups raw sliced cabbage
1-1/2 cups peeled and cubed eggplant
1 cup peeled and cubed butternut squash
1 medium tomato, chopped
4-8 chicken thighs with skin-depends on how meaty you like things
½ cup raisins

Optional: 1 cup soaked lentils. I didn't use this time.


In a stew pot, heat the olive oil and sauté the onion for 2 or 3 minutes. Add rest of veggies and saute for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the spices, stirring continuously. Add in chicken and raisins. Pour enough hot water to cover.
Bring to boil, turn down to simmer, cover and simmer for 60-90 minutes or longer. You can cook this for 4 hours like the Intro chicken soup or it's perfect for a crockpot meal. Remove chicken. Cool enough to handle. Throw away skin and remove meat from bone and add back to stew.
