Fall Favourite; Moroccan Chickpea Stew

Moroccan Chickpea Stew is a go-to in our house.

It's the perfect fall recipe, vegetarian, and really easy!

We love making it in this enamelled cast iron dutch oven (how can you resist the forest green) which comes in 2 sizes- 5.2L and 3.3L

Pair it with naan bread in a linen basket, add some beautiful patterned napkins, and your table will look fab!

Ingredients:
  • 1 medium chopped yellow onion

  • 2 minced garlic cloves

  • 1 sweet potato, cut into 1/2 inch cubes

  • 1 small head cauliflower, cut into florets

  • 1 medium zucchini, cut into bite-sized pieces

  • 1 (28 ounce) can diced tomatoes, not drained

  • 1 (400 ml) can coconut milk (or water to cover)

  • 1 bunch kale, ribs removed, chopped

  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro

Directions:
  • Heat olive oil in a large heavy-bottomed pot over medium heat; add onion and garlic until cooked and onions are soft, about 5 minutes.
