Freezer Meal Chickpea Stew

THIS meal caught my eye on a Buzzfeed listicle.  We made it for a freezer meal get-together and it was a winner.  Everyone loved it.

1 yellow onion, diced
1 T. oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 t. cinnamon, turmeric, cumin, coriander, ground cloves
salt, to taste
1 t. ginger
1 red chili
15 oz diced tomatoes
15 oz chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1 large sweet potato, peeled and 1in. chunks
15 oz light coconut milk

Jasmine rice, to serve with

In skillet, heat oil and onion for 3-4 minutes.
Add garlic, chili, ginger and spices.  Heat.
Add all other ingredients. Simmer for 30 to 50 minutes.  (Taste after 20 minutes to see if you want more spices added.  Maybe even some cayenne pepper.)

Let cool. Package in gallon freezer bags.
We also packaged a cup of Jasmine rice in a small ziplock bag to freeze along side the dish so everything would be together when this meal was needed.

To reheat, thaw in fridge overnight and warm on stove.  Serve over cooked rice with a  parsley garnish, if on hand.
