The Chickpea Stew

It’s THE chickpea stew that’s gone viral. With some crispy & smashed chickpeas, lots of spices, coconut milk and warm pita, I’d call it perfection! You can find the recipe over at New York Times Cooking: https://cooking.nytimes.com/recipes/1019772-spiced-chickpea-stew-with-coconut-and-turmeric

Main Ingredients

1/4 cup olive oil, plus more for serving

4 garlic cloves, chopped

1 large yellow onion, chopped

1 (2- inch) piece ginger, finely chopped

kosher salt and black pepper

1 1/2 teaspoons ground turmeric, plus more for serving

1 teaspoon red-pepper flakes, plus more for serving

2 (15- ounce) cans chickpeas, drained and rinsed

2 (15- ounce) cans full-fat coconut milk

2 cups vegetable or chicken stock

1 bunch swiss chard, kale or collard greens, stems removed, torn into bite-size pieces

1 cup mint leaves, for serving

yogurt, for serving (optional)

toasted pita, lavash or other flatbread, for serving (optional)

Preparation

1Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add garlic, onion, and ginger. Season with salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally until onion is translucent and starts to brown a little around the edges, 3 to 5 minutes.

2Add turmeric, red-pepper flakes and chickpeas, and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, so the chickpeas sizzle and fry a bit in the spices and oil, until they’ve started to break down and get a little browned and crisp, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove about a cup of chickpeas and set aside for garnish.

3Using a wooden spoon or spatula, further crush the remaining chickpeas slightly to release their starchy insides (this will help thicken the stew). Add coconut milk and stock to the pot, and season with salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer, scraping up any bits that have formed on the bottom of the pot. Cook, stirring occasionally until stew has thickened and flavors have started to come together 30 to 35 minutes. (Taste a chickpea or two, not just the liquid, to make sure they have simmered long enough to taste as delicious as possible.) If after 30 to 35 minutes you want the stew a bit thicker, keep simmering until you've reached your desired consistency. Determining perfect stew thickness is a personal journey! 

4Add greens and stir, making sure they’re submerged in the liquid. Cook, a few minutes so they wilt and soften, 3 to 7 minutes, depending on what you’re using. (Swiss chard and spinach will wilt and soften much faster than kale or collard greens.) Season again with salt and pepper.

5Divide among bowls and top with mint, reserved chickpeas, a sprinkle of red pepper flakes and a good drizzle of olive oil. Serve alongside yogurt and toasted pita if using; dust the yogurt with turmeric if you'd like.
