Recipe Box: Warming Chickpea Stew

Now that winter is really kicking in here in London (I feel like I've started every blog post with that recently!) I'm craving warmer foods but also meals that are packed with nutrients and vitamins that are going to stop me catching any colds or flus that always go around this time of year.  I found a recipe by my favourite, Deliciously Ella, which I slightly adapted.  It's sort of between a stew and a curry which you can have with or without rice.

Ingredients

Tinned tomatoes
Coconut milk
Sweet potato
Aubergine
Spinach
Chickpeas
Tomato puree
Apple cider vinegar
Turmeric
Curry powder
Salt & pepper
Garlic
Brown rice


Pop the sweet potato into the microwave for 10 minutes and then cut into chunks

Chop the aubergine into chunks

Put the tomato puree, vinegar, garlic, spices and salt into a pot with olive oil for 1 minute

Then add the coconut milk, tinned tomatoes, aubergine, sweet potato and more salt and pepper into the pot for about 25 minutes

Then add the chickpeas and spinach and cook for a further 10 minutes

Serve with brown rice
