  1. Heat olive oil in a stockpot over medium heat. Cook and stir celery, chopped onion, and bell pepper in hot oil until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir garlic into the celery mixture; cook and stir until fragrant, about 1 minute more.
  2. Pour vegetable broth into the pot; add tomatoes, carrots, potatoes, pearl onions, thyme, salt, and pepper. Bring the broth to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until the vegetables are tender, about 20 minutes.
  3. Stir chicken and red pepper flakes to the pot; cook until the chicken is hot, 5 to 10 minutes. Stir vinegar into the soup just before serving.

I admit, I don't know what Moroccan Stew is supposed to taste like, but if this is it, I like Moroccan Stew! I followed the recipe as written except that I used ground thyme instead of dried. I was really quite nervous about the recipe towards the end. When I added the red pepper flakes, it got spicy fast and I thought it was maybe too much for us. Then the vinegar I was very nervous about. I added the first tablespoon, stirred and sampled, and it had no sour taste and had mellowed the spice of the red pepper flakes. I added the second and a bit of bitterness showed up, but definitely not too much. The perfect amount I would say. Kudos to a great recipe.

My wife and I had the opportunity to dine at a Moroccan restaurant in Philly as part of a birthday celebration. I'll admit to experiencing some concern as I am not an intrepid foodie- I like what I like and am not usually open to trying new things. I'm glad I tried this time though because it was really delicious. So I came to A/R looking to see if I could find anything that would be comparable and came across this recipe. It was really quite good! I didn't have red wine vinegar so I used red wine instead, and chicken stock instead of veggie stock; other than that, I kept to the recipe. Another keeper, thank you!
