My Daughter's Crockpot Recipe- Moroccan Lamb

Moroccan-style Lamb
I love the smells and flavors associated with Moroccan dishes, like tumeric and cumin. Add a little cinnamon and garlic and you have smells that make your stomach gurgle in anticipation. They are also great spices for our health.

Last weekend my daughter made a Moroccan-style lamb crockpot (368 cal). It smelled delicious as it cooked all day long. At dinnertime it was served up on couscous. The juices from the stew were delicious with the couscous, which I find can be dry without a sauce. It was topped with a dollop of Greek yogurt and a spray of mint.  It was appealing to the eye when served up and tasty to eat.

To make it a meal we added a Spinach Pear Salad (72 cal) for a total calorie count of 440. It was a hit and a definite repeat.
