MMMMM-----------------------ACCOMPANIMENT----------------------------
           Couscous and crusty bread
 
  In a bowl soak chick-peas in water in cover by 2 inches overnight or
  quick-soak (procedure page 103) and drain.
  
  In a 3-quart saucepan combine chick-peas, cinnamon, cumin seeds, and
  water to cover, by 2 inches and simmer, covered partially, adding
  more water if necessary, 1 to 1 1/4 hours, or until chick-peas are
  just tender. Discard cinnamon. Chick-peas may be made 1 day ahead,
  cooled completely, and chilled in their cooking liquid, covered.
  
  In a large heavy kettle heat oil over moderate heat and cook onions,
  stirring occasionally, until deep golden brown, about 15 minutes.
  Stir in tomatoes with reserved juice, chick-peas with cooking liquid,
  raisins, preserved lemon peel, ground cumin, and coriander and bring
  to a simmer. Cook stew about 45 minutes, or until chick-peas are
  tender and liquid is thickened slightly. Stir in spinach, a heaping
  handful at a time, and cook until wilted and just tender.
  
  Season stew with salt and pepper and serve with couscous and bread.
  
  TO QUICK-SOAK DRIED BEANS
  
  1/2 to 1 pound dried beans, picked over
  
  In a colander rinse the beans under cold water and discard any
  discolored ones. In a kettle combine the beans with enough cold water
  to cover them by 2 inches, bring the water to a boil, and boil the
  beans for 2 minutes. Remove the kettle from the heat and let the
  beans soak, covered, for 1 hour.
  
  Serves 8.
