    Delicious, made garbanzo’s in my new instant pot and needed a quick dinner. Miracles happened as I had all the ingredients. Great leftover too.

    This reminds me of khow suey. Really delicious. Used canned or precooked beans to speed up the process.

    The sweet potatoes were the best part of this. The chickpea mixture was okay but it was a bit bland and didn't pick up much flavor from the spinach or tomatoes. The yogurt sauce complemented everything well.

    Pg. 82 Overall a very tasty dish. I agree with the other comments that the honeyed sweet potato contrasts very well with the tangy yogurt and savoury tomato sauce. I also used canned chickpeas, and added a bit of chicken stock as my canned tomatoes didn't make for enough liquid in the pan. I also tossed the cilantro in to the pan at the end of cooking, and went with about 150 grams of spinach. I did worry the already sweet potato would be far too sweet with the honey, but the result was smooth, sweet, and smoky, just right really.

    A very good recipe, we used canned chickpeas instead of dried. The taste of the sweet potatoes with honey contrasts well with the lemon and yoghurt dressing. This will be going on a list of favourites.

    Thankfully, you can eat both healthy and delicious food. Simultaneously. This dish being the prime example. The sweet potatoes, which are simmered in a mix of honey and water are addictive.
