Chickpea Stew

My local farmer’s market used to sell this amazing chickpea stew dish over rice, but the booth that sold it is no longer there. I was craving it the other day, so I looked up Moroccan chickpea soup recipes to get some ideas. Then I basically just threw a bunch of things I like into a pot and cooked it up. This recipe is super easy, hearty, and cheap!
Chickpea Stew Recipe
1/2 onion, diced
3 large cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp cumin
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
1 can chickpeas, drained
1 can diced tomatoes
2 cups vegetable broth (or more if desired)
2 cups kale, chopped
1/4 cup cilantro or parsley
kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper (to taste)
Sautee onions and garlic. Add the spices, stirring until fragrant. Add chickpeas, tomatoes, and broth. Bring to a simmer for 15 minutes. Mash chickpeas (for a thicker soup), then att the kale and herbs. Season with salt and pepper to taste, then serve with rice. Garnish with cilantro or parsley if desired.
