Ready in 50 minutes

You will need:

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  •  2 onions, peeled and diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 2 x 400g cans chopped tomatoes

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Cooked long-grain rice, to serve

  1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the onions and fry for 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until softened and golden, adding the garlic after 5 minutes.
  2. Stir in the spices and cook for 1-2 minutes until fragrant then add the tomatoes, puree and sugar. Simmer gently for 15-20 minutes until the sauce has thickened, stirring occasionally.
  3. Stir in the chickpeas and simmer for a further 10 minutes. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Serve with cooked long grain rice and garnished with the parsley.

Tip – Stir a handful of baby spinach leaves into the stew just before the end of cooking time, if liked.
