  • 1.5 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium onion
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 sweet potatoes - about a pound
  • 1 small head of cauliflower
  • 1 15 oz can of chicpeas
  • 1 15 oz can of diced tomatoes
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cusp vegetable broth (can sub water)
  • 3/4 cup natural peanut butter - smooth (ingredients should be just peanuts)
  • 6 - 7 oz Rainbow Chard
  • fresh cilatnro
  • peanuts
  • 1 lemon
  • garlic
  • chili garlic sauce
  • salt and pepper to taste


I always like to to all the chopping and measuring to start, so I can focus on timing during cooking!

  • dice onion and mince garlic, set aside
  • chop cauliflower into florets and sweet potatoes into 1/2 inch cubes - doesn't have to be perfect
  • stem and chop of rainbow chard, place in bowl and set aside
  • measure out spices (cinnamon, cumin, paprika, ginger), put in a small bowl or cup and set aside

Now it's time to start cooking!

  • heat olive oil over medium heat
  • add minced garlic and diced onions. 3 min until begins to brown
  • add cinnamon, cumin and paprika and stir for 2 min
  • add the liquids: broth and water
  • add the diced tomatoes, cauliflower, sweet potatoes, chicpeas and peanut butter
  • stir and bring to a boil
  • cover the pot and reduce heat to medium - low for 20 min

Optional! But if you want, while the pot is simmering, take this time to prep items for garnish

  • chop up the cilantro and peanuts for garnish.
  • put out some garlic chili sauce

And to add a bit of liveliness:

  • juice one lemon


  • test the cauliflower and sweet potatoes to make sure they have softened
  • take the pot off the heat
  • stir in the chard
  • finish by stirring in lemon juice

Serving suggestions:

  • Over brown rice, or another grain
  • Fresh cilantro adds a bit of color and crunch!
  • Chopped peanuts for additional texture
  • Chili Garlic Sauce like Huy Fong for a bit of a kick!
