This is my type of meal on any day. It is hearty, healthy, and most important- so good! I love all the flavors I use. Turmeric, cinnamon, honey, and cumin, pow! By the way, the spices I use are so good for you and packed with antioxidants. You will love this stew-like meal and it is easy and fast. The best part is the dollop of Greek-style yogurt on top. You should have most of the ingredients on hand too. 🙂
2 tbs olive oil
1 small onion, thinly sliced
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 14 oz cans chickpeas, (low-sodium) rinsed and drained
3 med carrots, peeled and sliced into thin rounds
1/4 cup currants, or raisins
1 tsp ground turmeric
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground cumin
