The other day I looked in my cupboards and found a sad sight. I was down to the bare minimum in groceries since we are only days away from our big move. So I took two of the ingredients I had on hand (I’d just soaked and cooked some chickpeas and had a handful of new potatoes I’d just found in a surprise garden in the corner of our yard) and did a google search, where upon I found this recipe and modified it to suit what I had.
The Result: This was super easy-to-make, had nice balanced flavours, was not too spicy for the kids to enjoy (and good golly did they like it!)
Notes: Don’t omit the butter! The buttery taste in this stew is FAB-U-LOUS! And in case you’re wondering what the other yummy looking dish is on my plate, that’s Chaya’s Comfy Cook Blog’s Portabello Mushrooms with Mediterranean Stuffing. Mm Mm!
Chick Pea Potato Curry Stew
2 1/2 cups vegetable broth
3 cups cooked chickpeas (1.5 – 14 oz cans)
1 cup tomatoes, diced (canned is fine)
1/2 jalapeño pepper, minced
6 new potatoes, diced (about 12 oz)
1 medium onion, diced
1 Tbsp butter
2 tsp fresh ginger, minced
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp coriander
1/2 tsp black pepper
Directions: Combine all of the ingredients into a large pot. Place over medium heat and stir to mix. Simmer vigorously for 35 minutes, uncovered. Serve over rice.
