Directions

  1. Place water, bouillon cubes, and raisins in a saucepan over high heat. Bring to a boil, and simmer until bouillon cubes dissolve.
  2. Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion, garlic, and ginger; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Add cinnamon sticks, cloves, cayenne, turmeric, coriander, and cumin; cook for about 3 minutes until fragrant, stirring constantly.
  3. Stir garbanzo beans, yams, and pear into onions; pour in hot vegetable stock and raisins. Bring to a simmer, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the vegetables have softened and the sauce has thickened, about 1 hour.
  4. Season to taste with salt and stir in chopped cilantro before serving.

For the next few days, I'm on an elimination diet(Doctor's orders). That means I can't eat virtually anything. Somehow, this dish is alright for me to eat. Wow! I can't believe how great it tastes. I've never had a chickpea dish with flavors this rich -- and without any fatty coconut milk. My substitutions: I used a lot (roughly 2T) of garam masala instead of the spices listed here, since it's a comparable blend, and dried cranberries for half of the raisins (didn't seem to make much a difference). -- yum! Next time, I might double the sweet potato or even add butternut squash. So tasty and fragrant -- My boyfriend said it smells like Christmas in here.

This was fine, but I was underwhelmed compared to all the glowing reviews. Not sure if I will make it again.

This was a delicious, healthy and easy recipe. It takes awhile to simmer, but the prep work isn't intensive. The yams, pears and raisins add a nice sweetness-- but it's not overly sweet. It packs quite a punch, though, so if you don't like it spicy, cut down on the cayenne. I used a 32oz. container of vegetable broth from the store instead of the boullion, and forgot to include the cilantro, but it turned out lovely. The dish was great paired with naan bread. Definitely a keeper!

This was super tasty! Even my meat-eating family enjoyed it. I made coconut rice to go with it, which balanced the flavors very nicely. I used chicken broth instead of the veggie bullion and used 1/2 tsp of ground cinnamon instead of the sticks. I also added some cubed potatoes and summer squash. The flavor was mild, but still very tasty. I think next time I will add more cayenne.

Excellent recipe-I doubled the pears and yams, substituted 1 teaspoon cinnamon for the cinnamon sticks and reduced the cayenne to 1/2 a teaspoon. Not overly sweet-just wonderful and do not double or you will be able to feed the whole neighborhood.Makes plenty as written.

Excellent recipe. I took about a cup of the mixture and put it in the blender to thicken the dish. Otherwise followed the recipe exactly.

OH MY! This is AMAZING! I followed the recipe exactly and have made this many times with great success! Everyone asks for the recipe. PERFECT! Thanks so much!

So flavorful but just a tad too spicy with that much cayenne . . . and my family likes things spicy. Still, it's a 5-star recipe. And it feels good eating something so healthy that even the kids will gobble up.
