I love cooking new vegetarian dishes. Not only is it great for your body but great for your wallet! This Moroccan inspired dish can be made with chicken but I decided to make a vegetarian version this time around. If you’d rather add the chicken, just add 2 skinless and boneless breasts cut into chunks into the recipe. In addition to tasting great, I love how colorful this stew is. Great fall colors with the squash, tomatoes and carrots!

* I cheated and bought the already peeled squash from the store. They didn’t have the type that was chopped up too or I would have bought this. I would not however make this with frozen squash.
