This soupy chickpea and rainbow chard stew is comfort in a bowl. Colourful, nutritious, and full of flavour, it will warm and satisfy, especially when served with naan or your favourite bread.

The greens in this recipe can be swapped out for spinach, kale or collard greens. If you want this stew to be thicker, you may reduce the amount of broth to 1 cup. We like it this way, between a stew and a soup in consistency. The garnish of mint, cilantro, yogurt, chili flakes, and a drizzle of olive oil will make this a beautiful dish.


  1. Heat olive oil in Dutch oven over medium heat. Add onion, garlic and ginger. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is soft and translucent and is starting to brown, 4 to 5 minutes.
  2. Add turmeric, paprika and chili flakes and cook for 2 minutes.
  3. Add tomatoes, chickpeas, coconut milk and broth, and season lightly with salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer, and cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until stew has thickened to your liking, 35 to 40 minutes.
  4. Add rainbow chard and cook until softened, 5 to 7 minutes. Add lime juice and adjust final seasoning.
  5. Divide among bowls and top with mint and cilantro. Add a dollop of yogurt and drizzle with a bit more olive oil and a garnish of chili flakes. Serve with naan or bread.
