Number of Servings: 8


    2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
    1 tbsp cold-pressed canola oil
    1 yellow onion, chopped (optional)
    1/2 tsp turmeric
    1/2 tsp ground cumin
    1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
    1/2 tsp cayenne
    1 cup water
    3 cups cooked chickpeas or 2 15.5 oz cans, drained and rinsed
    2 (14.5 oz) cans diced tomatoes, drained
    Salt and pepper


Steam the sweet potatoes for 20 minutes until just tender. Or, for a quick trick, cut them up and microwave a couple minutes at a time.
In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion, turmeric, cumin, cinnamon, and cayenne. Cover and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in the water, reserved sweet potatoes, chickpeas, tomatoes, and salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low, and simmer until the mixture thickens and the flavors are blended, about 15 minutes.
