PLEASE READ – you may have got an email with details of the Natural Parenting Ebook bundle which starts this coming Monday. I got all eager beaver and accidentally published the blog post yesterday which meant it went out to you as an email (if you subscribe to the blog – and if you don’t, it might be time to start – hint hint). Anyway – this wasn’t supposed to happen because it isn’t available until next week and if you have purchased via the link, not all the books have been loaded on – so sit tight and as soon as you can purchase it, I’ll be letting you know AGAIN. If you have purchased it – I’m waiting to find out what happens now. If this makes no sense to you – you weren’t affected so carry on as you were dear….
I’ve got a whole lot of love for this woman and I’m super chuffed to feature a recipe from Adele aka Vegiehead on the site today. Adele is joining me this season on healthtalks – in fact we had a little chat over on her site just yesterday.
How good does this look? Well go on then – make and eat it already!
Pumpkin and Chickpea Tagine
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 large yellow onion, sliced into rings
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp turmeric
1 tsp sweet paprika
1 tsp cumin
4 cups pumpkin, diced
2 cups tomatoes, diced
1 cup water
1 1/2 cups chickpeas, soaked overnight and boiled, or canned- drained and rinsed
Heat oil in your Tagine (or large pot) over a medium heat
Add onion rings and garlic, and sauté until soft; about 5 minutes
Add cinnamon, turmeric, paprika and cumin, and stir to release fragrances
Pour in tomatoes, water and chickpeas (if you are using a small Tagine, you may need to halve the tomatoes and water and add once reduced)
With the lid on, bring to a gentle boil, then stir, replace lid, and allow to simmer for 15 minutes
Check regularly and stir gently, adding more water as needed, 1 tbsp at a time
Add pumpkin and cook for a further 15-20 minutes, stirring gently
Serve with fresh coriander, vegan sour cream, and cracked pepper to taste
