Sweet Potatoes and Chickpeas Recipe

Makes about 4 servings


2 small sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 can of chickpeas
1 yellow onion, chopped
2 medium size tomatoes, chopped
1 green onion (scallion)
Sea salt
Extra-virgin olive oil


1. Steam sweet potato cubes for 15 minutes or until just tender.

2. In a large sauce pan, heat 2 tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil over medium heat. Add chopped onions and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add cooked sweet potatoes, chickpeas, and tomatoes and cook over low to medium heat for 12 minutes.

3. Season with sea salt to taste, then serve over a bed of your favourite grain or on its own. If you have some chopped green onion on hand, garnish just before serving. Ripe avocado slices also add a nice contrasting, creamy texture to this dish. Enjoy!
