Moroccan Sweet Potato & Chickpea Stew

Jump to recipe


This is the recipe that inspired the Moroccan peanut butter!

This stew holds a special place in our hearts (and tummies). 

Jared was on his way back from a business trip in the US in the middle of winter.

He wasn't in the best of spirits - the weather hadn't cooperated, meetings were "meh" and was exhausted from the whirlwind nature of the voyage.

He arrived home and was greeted by a warm, spiced, nutty aroma.

Lindsay had discovered this recipe and though the cinnamon, ginger and peanut combo combined with the sweet notes of sweet potato would be exactly what Jared needed.

She was bang on - eating it was like putting on a sweater warm from the dryer!

Absolutely delicious and so easy to make, it's now a regular go to for us!
