Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 1 1/2 cups of chickpeas, soaked overnight and boiled, or canned - drained and rinsed
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 large yellow onion, sliced into rings
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • fresh coriander
  • 1 tsp sweet paprika
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 4 cups pumpkin, diced
  • 2 cups tomatoes, diced
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tbsp vegan sour cream (optional)


Heat oil in your tagine (or large pot) over a medium heat 

Add onion rings and garlic and sauté until soft, for approximately 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 tablespoon at a time.

Add pumpkin and cook for a further 15 to 20 minutes, stirring gently.

Serve with fresh coriander, vegan sour cream and cracked pepper to taste.
