Sweet Potato and Chickpea Stew

This stew is so good, inspired by a recipe I saw on pinterest with my own twist I made it again yesterday and added Spinach. I was also happy that Jasmine liked it too. Super healthy with protein from the nuts and chickpeas, and anti oxidant rich carrots and sweet potatoes. 


  • one can of chickpeas
  • 2 cloves of chopped garlic
  • 1/2 a lime's juice
  • 1/4 cup freshly chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin powder
  • 1/2 a chopped red onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon coriander powder
  • one tomato chopped
  • one can of chopped tomatoes 
  • one large carrot chopped 
  • one large sweet potato chopped
  • 1/2 a cup of roughly chopped peanuts
  • salt to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon of Turkish seasoning
  • one cup of vegetable stock


  1. saute the onion and garlic in olive oil, add the cumin and coriander powders for 5 minutes
  2. add the tomato and let it form a paste 3 min
  3. then add the carrot, sweet potato, chickpeas, vegetable stock, lime juice, cilantro, Turkish spice and peanuts mix
  4. simmer for 20 minutes 
  5. enjoy 

Have a wonderful weekend everyone :-)
