  • 3 sprays cooking spray
  • 1 small eggplant diced

  • 2 medium carrots chopped
  • 10 oz lean ground beef
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1-1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 15 oz can diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup chickpeas rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 8 halves dried apricots
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup cilantro chopped

Instructions

  1. Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium-high heat. Add eggplant, onion and carrots; cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables soften slightly and are light golden, 7 minutes.

  2. Add beef to skillet; cook until browned, breaking up clumps with a wooden spoon, 2 minutes. Stir in garlic, cumin and cinnamon; cook until fragrant, stirring, 30 seconds.

  3. Stir in tomatoes, chickpeas, broth, apricots and salt; bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer, stirring occasionally, for vegetables to become tender and for flavors to develop, 10 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in cilantro and serve with lemon wedges.
