Spray a large pot with nonstick spray, then sautรฉ your onion and garlic for a few minutes until fragrant 2. Add your spices, then your carrots & zucchini 3. Cook for 5-7 minutes until they start to become more tender 4. Cut the tomatoes as you add them (I cut them over the pot to let the tomato juice spill over into the pot!) & then add the tomato juice and the drained can of chickpeas 5. Let simmer while you finish everything else. 6. For the meatballs, throw all the spices and meat together, mix, and then form meatballs 7. Cook on a sprayed pan 8. Cook the couscous according to package instructions 9. Divide ingredients 5 ways & enjoy! . ๐—ก๐—ผ๐˜๐—ฒ: This could be a great vegan meal if you added more chickpeas for protein & cut out the beef of course ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹ . . . #mealprep #mealprepsunday #moroccanfood #healthymealprep #mealprepideas #healthyrecipes #healthyrecipeshare #highprotein #couscous #veggies #veggiestew #fitfoodie #mealprepping #fitnessjourney #fitnessjourney #healthylifestyle #foodisfuel #absaremadeinthekitchen #worklunch
