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 Farm Boy™ Extra Virgin 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, about 4 to 5 minutes.
  2. Add Farm Boy™ Organic Turmeric, Farm Boy™ Organic Paprika, and Farm Boy™ Organic Chili Peppers and cook for 2 minutes.
  3. Add Farm Boy™ Italian Tomatoes, Farm Boy™ Organic Chickpeas, Farm Boy™ Organic Coconut Milk, and Farm Boy™ Organic Vegetable Broth, and season lightly with salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer, and cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until stew has thickened to your liking, about 35 to 40 minutes.
  4. Add rainbow chard and cook until softened, about 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 Farm Boy™ Organic Plain Greek Yogurt and drizzle with a bit more olive oil and a garnish of chili flakes. Serve with Farm Boy™ Flame-Baked Original Naan or bread.
