Moroccan Spiced Lamb Stew

A vibrant blend of Moroccan spices makes a perfect complement to lamb and apricot stew. Ginger, cinnamon, salt and pepper mixed with aromatic nutmeg and cloves make this warming stew both homey and exotic. Lamb is commonly used in Moroccan cuisine, and marries well to this blend of spices. Let the stew come together in the slow cooker, and make your rice in the rice cooker, to create a meal that looks and tastes like it was prepared by a world-traveled chef. This recipe would also be good with chicken, and quinoa could easily be substituted for the rice.
