Vegetable and Chickpea Stew

I was going to make some tomato based stew but N really isn’t that keen on the whole beany-tomatoey stew thing any more so I ditched that at the last minute and produced this instead. It was yumsome and filling. Cool.

For 3-4 servings you need:
1 tin pulses (we had chickpeas)
1 onion, chopped
1 medium sweet potato, diced
1 large carrot, diced
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 litre veggie stock
2 tsp cornflour slackened with some cold water
handful roughly chopped fresh parsley.

Begin by sauteeing the onion in some olive oil then add the carrot and sweet potato and continue sauteeing for a few mins. Add the stock and bring to the boil then simmer for about 15 mins till the veggies are tender. Add the cornflour and parsley, heat through and serve. We had it with broccoli and new potatoes. Even Lex had some, wonders will never cease!
