I love the unusual combination of flavorings in this dish. The tastes of the cinnamon and ginger really come through, and the bittersweet mixture of lemon and honey, with a sprinkling of currants, adds a perfect finish. Serve this over whole-grain couscous to complement the Middle Eastern flavors. Add spinach or Swiss chard to complete the meal. Use a medium to large (3 ½ to 5 quart) slow cooker.

In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and carrots and cook, stirring, until carrots are softened, about 7 minutes. Add garlic, cinnamon stick, ginger, turmeric, salt and peppercorns and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add tomatoes with juice and bring to a boil. Transfer to slow cooker stoneware.
Stir in squash, chickpeas and mushrooms. Cover and cook on Low for 8 hours or on High for 4 hours, until vegetables are tender. Discard cinnamon stick.
In a small bowl, combine honey and lemon juice. Add to slow cooker and stir well. When serving, sprinkle in currants, if using.
Complete Step 1. Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days. When you’re ready to cook, complete the recipe.
Note from Nava: Vegans can substitute agave nectar for the honey.
