A hearty sweet potato and chickpea stew that will keep you warm all winter!


  • 2 sweet potatoes, chopped
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 red onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 128 oz can diced tomatoes
  • 115 oz can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 tsp chili flakes
  • pinch of salt, to taste
  • pepper, to taste
  • 2 handfuls fresh spinach (optional)


  • Preheat oven for 400 F.
  • Add chopped sweet potatoes, oil, paprika and salt to a baking pan. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes.
  • To a pot on medium heat, add the oil, onion, garlic and cook 4-5 minutes until softened. Add the diced tomatoes, salt, chili flakes and chickpeas and simmer until the sweet potato is done. Remove sweet potato from the oven, stir and cook another 15 minutes.
  • Once cooked, add the sweet potato to the pot with the spinach and cook a few minutes until wilted.


Goes really well with my fluffy vegan cornbread!


  1. This looks like the ultimate wintery stew – I’m definitely making it, although I’ll probs add a good 5 times more smoked paprika than specified because, erm, I have a problem.

    This contains the holy trinity: it’s comforting and cozy food, easy to make and I’ve already got all the ingredients in the cupboard.

    • This was my first time successfully making a vegan recipe and it was delicious! I will definitely be making this again. ?

  2. Just made it today and it was delicious! Will definitely be making again. We had it with white rice?

  3. This stew was a great reward after two hours walking in the cold! Yay Canadian weather?

  4. Really delicious! I’d let the chickpeas simmer with the tomatoes as long as possible to make sure they soften but everything else is perfect. The smoked paprika adds a lovely touch of smokiness.
