Sweet Potato & Chickpea Tagine


I love creating simple tasty dinners from store cupboard staples & vegetables

….minimum waste and maximum taste!

Try this vegan recipe as part of your week – it takes about 50 minutes to cook in total, so perhaps

a good one to make on Sunday evening in preparation for the week ahead…..


Serves 6


  • 1/2 tablespoon of coconut oil
  • 3 medium sweet potatoes
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 white onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1/2 bag of fresh spinach (you could also use a few handfuls of frozen spinach)
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp chilli flakes (or more if you prefer it spicy)
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 2 cans of plum/diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 block of creamed coconut (or 1/2 can of coconut milk)
  • salt & pepper
  • 2 tablespoons of tomato puree
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vegetable stock
  • 1 can chickpeas (in water – not salted)

Serve with brown rice, sliced avocado and lots of freshly squeezed lime!



  1. In a big pan add chopped onion and garlic, cook in coconut oil until soft
  2. Add to the pan – chopped sweet potato, carrot, pepper and sautee for 5 mins
  3. Now add the spices – cook for 2 minutes to release the aroma
  4. Season with salt & pepper, add tinned tomatoes, creamed coconut, tomato puree and a little vegetable stock – cook for 30 mins – you may need to add a little water if it doesn’t look like the vegetables are covered.
  5. Now add chickpeas & spinach and cook for a final 10 minutes

Serve with: Brown rice, avocado, fresh coriander and plenty of freshly squeezed lime


Extra Options:

  • Use any vegetables you like. Courgette, butternut squash, pumpkin, peas, kale all work well.
  • Add 1/2 cup of red lentils at the same time as the tinned tomatoes for extra protein & fibre.
  • Make it as spicy as you like – fresh chilli and yogurt would make tasty toppings.
  • Add a few chopped dates/ dried apricots for a little sweetness.
