A wonderful Spanish stew with sweet potato, chickpea and spinach. All of the main ingredients are super healthy, which means we have everything our body needs – vegetable protein, zinc, iron, folic acid and various vitamins.

The idea behind this stew is a traditional Spanish dish that really impressed me with unique flavour and taste, and which I wanted to recreate at home.

Instructions
  1. Peel and wash the potato, then chop into 1 cm cubes. Peel and finely chop the onion and the garlic.
  2. Heat olive oil in a deep frying pan on medium heat and cook the onion and the garlic.
  3. Add the sweet potato and let it cook for a little bit.
  4. Add the tomatoes, chickpeas, a little water and stir.
  5. Season with salt, cumin, chilli pepper and let it simmer for about 25 minutes or until the potatoes are cooked.
  6. Try the stew to see if it needs some more seasoning, because usually potatoes absorb the salt... season again if needed. Wash and add the spinach, stir and let it cook for 1 minute.
  7. Season with freshly ground black pepper and serve with some ground walnuts on top.
Recipe Notes

*The stew could be made with no spinach without losing its delicious and nutritional qualities.
