Chickpea,Sweet Potato,Corn Chowder


  • 1 tbsp oil of your choice or omit
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2-3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 large tomato, chopped
  • 1 large sweet potato, cut into bite sized pieces
  • 1.5 cups cooked chickpeas
  • 1 can sweet corn, drained
  • 3 cups vegetable stock
  • salt to taste
  • cracked black pepper to taste
  • 1/4 tsp chili flakes
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1/4 tsp ground cumin


  1. Heat oil in a large pot. Add onions and tomatoes. Stirring occasionally for a 5 minutes.
  2. Add the garlic and cumin. Stirring for a further 5 minutes.
  3. This is where a lot of the flavour is going to develop. You want a slight crust to start to develop, before adding the broth.
  4. Add the remaining spices and the sweet potato. Stirring until well coated.
  5. Stirring occasionally for a further 4-5 minutes.
  6. Add the vegetable stock, stirring well. Bring to a boil and then simmer, covered.
  7. When the sweet potatoes are halfway cooked (about 15 minutes) add the chickpeas and corn. Mix well.
  8. Cover and cook until the sweet potatoes are tender.
  9. Serve hot & enjoy!


Fresh corn is a great option to canned. Frozen is great as well. Toss in the soup from frozen.

Canned & drained chickpeas work just as well. I just used dried chickpeas and cooked them ahead of time.

You can substitute the sweet potato for another root vegetable of your choice. White or red potato. Turnips. Yams. Carrots.

Omit the chili flakes if you do not like spice.
