Serves: 4


  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 large red onion, peeled and diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp. minced fresh ginger
  • 1 tsp. ground coriander
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1⁄2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1⁄4 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • 1 can (14.5 oz.) chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1⁄4 cup chopped parsley


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and spray a 2-quart casserole dish lightly with nonstick spray.
  • Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. When hot, add the onion, garlic, and ginger. Cook the vegetables, stirring often, until the onion has softened, about 5 minutes. Add the coriander, cumin, cinnamon, salt, broth, and chickpeas. Bring to a simmer, then pour into the prepared casserole dish.
  • Cover the casserole tightly with foil and bake until the flavors have blended and the liquid is reduced slightly, 30 to 35 minutes. Stir in the parsley just before serving.
