I often find myself craving this dish in winter. It’s an adaptation of a meal I enjoy at my local Moroccan soup kitchen. Serve it up warm over some couscous or with toasted pita bread triangles. If you’re in a hurry, use canned chickpeas instead.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1 cup dried chickpeas, soaked overnight in enough water to cover with a 3 cm piece of kombu
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 onion, diced
1 garlic clove, crushed
sea salt
2 cm knob ginger, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper, (optional)
200g cauliflower, cut into florets
3 tablespoons * vegetable stock [rid:9273]
or 3 tablespoons water
200g fresh peas, blanched
1 tablespoon coriander leaves, roughly chopped
1 tablespoon mint leaves, roughly chopped

Orange tahini sauce

Quantity Ingredient
3 tablespoons hulled tahini
3 tablespoons orange juice
1 tablespoon finely grated orange zest
1 tablespoon shoyu
3 tablespoons plain yoghurt
1 tablespoon mirin

Method

  1. Drain the chickpeas and kombu and add to a heavy-based saucepan with 2 cups water. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for 30–45 minutes, or until the chickpeas soften. Remove from the heat and allow to cool in the cooking liquid.
  2. To make the orange tahini sauce, place all the ingredients in a bowl and whisk together to combine. Set aside until needed.
  3. Heat the oil in a deep frying pan over low heat. Add the onion and garlic with a pinch of sea salt and sauté for 3 minutes, or until softened. Add the ginger, ground turmeric, coriander, cumin and cayenne pepper and sauté for a further 2 minutes, stirring to combine.
  4. Add the cauliflower with the stock or water, cover, and cook for 3 minutes, or until the cauliflower is tender. Add the chickpeas with 1 teaspoon sea salt and cook for a further 2 minutes, mixing well. Remove the pan from the heat and stir through the orange tahini sauce, then fold in the peas and herbs and serve.
