Garbanzos in Coconut Milk

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Valeria

This recipe is from Zanzibar, Tanzania, where coconut and clove are major revenue and Indian ingredients influence local cuisine. Turmeric gives the dish a yellow color that darkens with cooking. This is better the second day, when the flavors have blended. For a change, you can substitute any other bean for garbanzos.

Easy as opening a can of soup. It really is. So delicious and soothing, almost- the flavors are hearty and turmeric is so healing. It's a good option for a work lunch- travels well. I used ground cloves and light coco milk. Awesome stuff. Thanks!
