The suit of wand’s element is fire and the symbolizes abundance and passion, and THE QUEEN is warm, vibrant, and makes a powerful first impression. Much like this spicy stew.
3 tbs avocado or coconut oil

1 large sweet potato, chopped 1/2 in cubes
2 large white potatoes, chopped 1/2 in cubes
1 12 oz can diced tomatoes
1 12 oz can chickpeas, drained
2 cups water (or enough to cover veggies)
2 bay leaves
1 cup coconut cream
Freshly chopped cilantro, parsley and scallion for serving
Salt to taste (or add more creole seasoning)
Your favorite rice, cooked, to serve with
-In a large pot heat oil on low.
-Add the following and cook until soft (15-20 min): onion, garlic, celery, jalapeño, creole seasoning, garlic powder, smoked paprika, herbs de Provence)
-Add the chopped potatoes, chickpeas, diced tomatoes, bay leaves, and water. Bring to a simmer. Adjust seasonings here to your liking.
-Let simmer on low for at least an hour, but the longer you cook the better it will taste!
-20 minutes before serving make your rice in another pot. Take stew off heat and add the coconut cream.
-Serve stew with rice and fresh herbs. Sprinkle more creole seasoning on top for extra salt and heat! 🔥
