Chickpeas Pottage with Yam and Potatoes

As you may have noticed Chickpeas is a major ingredient in my kitchen these days so i had to think of better ways to make them because my husband is now a vegetarian and this is one ingredient that is almost always present. So what we did is that we always have already soaked chickpeas in the freezer, makes it easy to make whatever you want to make faster.
I felt like eating a pottage and made this delicious Chickpeas with Yam and Potatoes Pottage. I enjoyed this meal very much!!!


  • chickpeas
  • yam
  • potatoes
  • onions
  • salt
  • minced garlic
  • cumin
  • turmeric
  • pepper
  • seasoning
  • basil or parsley 
  • palm oil
  • groundnut oil

Lets Make It
1. Put your already soaked chickpeas in a pot. Put in enough water, (the longer you allow them soak the shorter time they will spend on heat). Dice your onions and pour it in, save some onions, add salt, minced garlic and cover. Allow it get cooked.
2. When the chickpeas is soft, very soft. Add the already diced and washed yam and potatoes (cute them into bite sizes).
3. Add the seasoning, pepper and cover allow to get cooked.
4. Put a pan large enough to hold the pottage on heat. Pour in little palm oil and groundnut oil (you can use either one of them alone), when hot add the remaining onions, add the turmeric and cumin. Stir very well.
5. Pour in the chickpeas, yam and potatoes. Taste and adjust seasoning to your taste. Stir very well. Add the chopped basil or parsley.
6. It is ready to be enjoyed.
