Sweet Potato and Chickpea Stew

With the last few days until Christmas, what a perfect time to make this gorgeous wintery warming stew! It’s so easy to make, literally whacking it all in to a big saucepan and serving up! It can be easily reheated and make a big batch and freeze!

Ingredients – serves 3-4

1 Onion, finely chopped

1-2 Garlic cloves, finely chopped

2 x 400g Chopped Tomatoes

1 red onion, quartered

Handful cherry tomatoes, halved

1-2 Sweet potato, peeled and cut into chunks

1 chilli, finely chopped

Knob of ginger, grated

2 x 400g can Chickpeas

1 tsp paprika

1 tsp mixed herbs

1 tsp cumin

1/4 tsp cinnamon

400ml water

1 tbsp tomato paste

To serve: Coriander, coconut yogurt, rice



Add some oil to a large saucepan and add the onion and garlic and let this sweat for 5 minutes and then add the chilli and ginger for a further 2-3 minutes.

Add in the paprika, herbs, cumin and cinnamon and stir through.

Add the chunks of sweet potato, the red onion, cherry tomatoes, the chopped tomatoes and the water. 

Drain and add the chickpeas.

Stir everything together and simmer for 15 minutes.


Add the tomato paste

Then add the tomato paste and simmer for a further 15 minutes. Meanwhile, pop a pan of water on the hob and cook to packet instructions.

When they rice is ready, drain it and portion into bowls and add some of the stew!

Top with some coriander and coconut yogurt if you fancy!


Let me know if you give this a try! Honestly its so yummy and so easy!
