The weather has been crazy in my area. It goes extremely cold like in the negative digits to back to the fifties a day or two later. Making the days and nights uncomfortable. The best way I know to fix my cold weather blues is by making a comforting & hearty bowl of rice or quinoa with either a curry, stew or even a warm pot of soup. I’m a foodie, what can I say?
The Chickpeas and Potatoes combined in this dish are extremely filling and satisfying. This recipe can be made into a few different variations. You could always replace the potatoes with vegetables of choice. Eggplant, zucchini, cauliflower or broccoli would be great additions or replacements.
To begin, add in your olive oil to a hot skillet on medium high. Next add in the diced yellow onion and minced garlic.
Then, add in the curry powder, paprika, nutmeg, dried thyme, cumin, allspice and garlic powder. Mix all the herbs and spices together.
Let that cook about 3 minutes until the onions become translucent & the garlic is fragrant.
Then, add in your peeled and chopped potatoes. Mix that with the spice mix. Let that cook about 12 minutes for the potatoes to become tender.
Then, add in the Chickpeas, vegetable stock and diced tomatoes.
Now add in the chopped kale & diced scallions. Mix everything to combine and let it cook about 20 minutes.
Add in some sea salt to taste and serve with choice of quinoa or rice.
