Vegan Soup Recipes: Sweet Potato Chickpea Coconut Stew

October 26, 2015
Fall is officially here. Changing leaves, a crisp breeze, and warm pot of stew on the stove. When the seasons change, I like to embrace the seasonal produce and tailor my meals to fresh and local foods. One of my favorite fall ingredients to use is cinnamon and sweet potato. The two put together make one fantastic team. Sweet potato is not only delicious but packed full of vitamins; cinnamon has a high source of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. With a bit of spice and a splash of orange, this stew is the perfect fall comfort food. With an array of veggies and immune boosting spices, it's both hearty and healthy. Grab your favorite blanket and curl up with this festive stew.
