Number of Servings: 6


    Preserved Lemon, 66 grams
    White Kidney Beans (one can) 425 grams
    *Artichoke Hearts (I used a can of progresso Progresso brand)
    Baked Sweet Potato 230 grams
    Turnips, 211 grams (two small chopped & peeled)
    1/2 cup carrots
    *1 medium vidalia onion,
    14 green olives chopped
    Nasoya sprouted tofu plus organic super firm, 1 package
    2.5 tbsp canola oil
    Broth, Vegetable 2 cups
    Parsley, .25 cups
    Garlic, 5 cloves
    1/2 tbsp each of cinnamon, turmeric, chili flakes
    1 tbsp coriander & cumin seeds toasted and ground
    salt and pepepr


Step 1: In a small fry pan toast your cumin and coriander seeds for a few minutes. Once toasted I put all the spices in the ingredient list: cumin, coriander, red pepper flakes, turmeric, cinnamon, black pepper and sea salt into grinder. Grind everything together. Set aside.

Step 2: Next prep all you vegetables by dicing everything: onions, carrots, sweet potatoes, and turnip.
In a large heavy-bottom shallow pot or deep skillet [cast iron works best] on medium heat, add oil, onions, and garlic. Cook until onions are translucent and golden, stirring continuously for about 3 to 4 minutes.

Step 3: Reduce the heat to medium-low, add the spices, tomato paste, vegetable stock, carrots, sweet potatoes, and turnip. Cover and simmer for about 25 minutes, or until the carrots and potatoes are tender.

Step 4: When the root veggies are tender, add the olives, beans, artichokes, tofu, chopped preserved lemon. Continue simmering for about 5 to 8 minutes. Liquid should be reduced and thicker at this point. I omitted the olives and the artichokes sadly. These are two of my favourite things and I think they really would have added to the dish. I know that I wont forget these next time!

Step 5: Add parsley, cilantro, mint and sea salt, folding in all of the herbs. Cover and remove from the heat. Add salt if desired. Garnish with lemon zest, red sliced chili and any leftover parsley, cilantro or mint if desired
