Slow Cooker Chickpea Sweet Potato Stew with warm flavors from cumin, coriander and cinnamon is the perfect winter stew you’ll eat all season long.

Ingredients

  • 1 medium yellow onion (chopped)
  • 2 15 oz cans garbanzo beans (drained)
  • 1 pound sweet potatoes (peeled and chopped)
  • 1 tablespoon garlic (minced)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 4 cups vegetable broth (fat free)
  • 4 cups fresh baby spinach

Instructions

  • Place the onions in a microwave safe dish and microwave 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Add all the ingredients to your slow cooker except the spinach.
  • Cook on low for 6-7 hours or on high for 3-4 hours.
  • Add in the spinach leaves and stir.
  • Cook an additional 15 minutes on high.

Stove Directions:

  • Add the ingredients together except the spinach and cook on medium-low heat for 35-40 minutes.
  • Stir every 10 minutes or so, adding additional broth if you find the liquids reducing by too much.
  • (You can also sweat the garlic and onions first, but if doing so add a teaspoon of olive oil.)
  • Add the spinach the last 2 minutes, until wilted.

Instant Pot:

  • Add the ingredients together except for the spinach and cook on high pressure for 8 minutes.
  • Quick release, stir in the spinach and let it sit 2 minutes covered, until wilted.
  • (You can also sweat the garlic and onions first, but if doing so add a teaspoon of olive oil. This will give you the best results)
