Recipe: Exotic Chickpea Stew
We presented this recipe on a blustery cold day to my mom's TOPS Club. It was well received with its warming spices, big flavour and nutritious ingredients.
2 Chorizo sausage, sliced 1 large red onion, sliced
4 garlic cloves, minced 2 tsp. coriander seeds
1 tsp. cumin seeds, crushed 1 tsp. fennel seeds
1 - 2 tsp. paprika 1 lemon cut into wedges
1 small bunch parsley, chopped 7 oz. fresh spinach, chopped
Plain yogurt, 3% fat or higher 1-14 oz. can diced tomatoes, drained
2 - 14 oz. cans chickpeas, rinsed and drained
In a heavy pan, cook the sliced Chorizo sausage, onion, garlic and spices until the onions turn golden. Stir in the tomatoes. Add the chickpeas and simmer for about 7 minutes. Add the parsley and season with salt and pepper. Add the spinach leaves, cover pan, and steam briefly. Transfer to a bowl and serve immediately with lemon wedges and a dollop of thick, creamy plain yogurt.
