Fork-tender butternut squash, chewy chickpeas, and wilted spinach come together in this spice-laced Moroccan stew that’s a perfect way to warm up a weeknight meal. The dish comes together really quickly because there’s little prep work aside from measuring, especially if you buy pre-cubed butternut squash. If you prefer your stews extra-spicy, throw in a few rings of jalapeño peppers or a dash of chili flakes. Note that this recipe calls for cooked brown rice, so plan to have that ready to go ahead of time. Follow package instructions for the correct yield. And if you don’t have cooked brown rice on hand, any cooked grain will work.
