2 medium stalk(s) Celery (cut into 2-inch chunks)
1 can (19oz) Chickpeas, canned, drained (drained and rinsed)
1 tsp Cilantro (coriander), dried
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
2 clove(s) Garlic (minced)
2 tsp minced Ginger root
1 tbsp Lemon juice
1 tbsp Olive oil
1/2 cup pitted Prunes (halved)
1 small Red onion (sliced)

2 tbsp Tomato paste, canned

1 cup Vegetable stock/broth

Instructions


In Dutch oven or large heavy-bottomed saucepan, heat oil over medium heat; cook garlic and ginger, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add onion, coriander, turmeric and cinnamon; cook, stirring often, until onion is softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in tomato paste; cook for 1 minute.

Add 1-1/4 cups water, broth, celery and carrot; bring to boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until celery is softened, about 15 minutes.

Stir in cauliflower, chickpeas, prunes, salt and pepper; bring to boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, until cauliflower is tender, about 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, stir couscous with 1-1/3 cups boiling water. Cover and let stand for 5 minutes; fluff with fork.

Stir spinach and lemon juice into cauliflower mixture; cook just until spinach is wilted. Serve over couscous; sprinkle with almonds.
