Saucy Chickpeas and Sweet Potato

Post  Shona on Wed Apr 28, 2010 6:35 pm

Recently found this recipe and i was really surprised at just how filling it was.


(Serves 2)
2 sweet potatoes (appox 7oz/200g each)
1 small onion
2 cloves garlic
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
14oz/400g canned tomatoes
1 vegetable stock cube
2 spring/green onions
we used 2 cans of chick peas and it was too much

1. Wash the potatoes and prick them with a knife. Cook them in an oven preheated to 200C/400F/Gas Mark 6 for just over an hour or until soft.

2. Start to cook the chickpea sauce about 30 minutes before the potatoes finish cooking. Finely slice the onion and crush the garlic and fry in a little olive oil with 1 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar and Worcestershire sauce. Add the tinned tomatoes and stock cube. Add the chickpeas and heat them through, stirring occasionally.

3. 5 minutes before serving add the remaining balsamic vinegar and the chopped spring/green onions. Mix in well. Slice open the potatoes and serve the chickpeas inside.
