  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika

  • 1 cup vegetable broth

Cooking Instructions

  1. In a large pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the diced onion and minced garlic, and sauté until the onion becomes translucent.
  2. Add the ground cumin, ground coriander, ground turmeric, paprika, and cayenne pepper (if using). Stir well to coat the onion and garlic with the spices.
  3. Add the diced sweet potatoes to the pot and stir to combine with the spices. Cook for a few minutes until the sweet potatoes start to soften.
  4. Pour in the drained and rinsed chickpeas, diced tomatoes (with their juices), coconut milk, and vegetable broth. Stir everything together and bring the mixture to a simmer.
  5. Reduce the heat to low, cover the pot, and let the stew simmer for about 20-25 minutes, or until the sweet potatoes are tender. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking.
  6. Taste the stew and season with salt and pepper according to your preference.
  7. Remove the pot from the heat and garnish with fresh chopped cilantro.
