From the December 2009 Cooking Light. Note that you may want to cook your sweet potatoes a little bit before adding them. I found the cook time for the potatoes insufficient in this recipe.

We really loved this! Ended up using a package of frozen mixed vegetables instead of the chickpeas and frozen peas, which made the final dish nice and colorful. Nice and spicy!
