Chickpea Sweet Potato Vegan Stew Recipe

Chickpea Sweet Potato Stew is one of my favorite easy prep meals to make. Sometimes I serve it on rice, but I love it on its own, like a bowl full of cozy. When I make this dinner, I preheat the oven and start chopping the vegetables. Once all of the vegetables are in the pot, the oven is ready, and then I just need to set the timer and forget about it until dinner is ready! It takes about 40 minutes or so to finish cooking in the oven, but the lack of hands on time makes this a perfect dinner to make when you are busy with other things (or if you just don’t feel like cooking – we all have those days!)

Ingredients for Vegan Chickpea Sweet Potato Stew

The ingredients I use in this dish are pretty simple, and can be substituted with fresh or canned food depending on the season and what’s in your pantry. The sweet potatoes I use in this recipe are very small. If you can only get your hands on large sweet potatoes, just one should do. I use about a cup or two of diced sweet potatoes – it’s not an exact science, and that’s one of the things I love about stew: you can mix and match and add more of what you love and less of what you don’t. For example, if I am making this for the family, I chop the onions large enough so my picker eaters can pick them out if they want. If I was making this for just my husband and myself, I might add some Tabasco sauce for some extra kick. The point of the matter being: this is one of those recipes that is mostly just a guide line: add your favorite veggies and use what you have to make it your own! 
This recipe makes enough for two full sized servings, or four to six side dishes. If you need to feed more people, simply double it up or add more sweet potatoes and chickpeas!
