Moroccan Chickpea Tagine: 

3 tbsp olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1 garlic clove (optional)
1/4 tsp cayenne powder
1/4 tsp ginger powder
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp turmeric
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp cinnamon
1 cup Passata (strained tomatoes)
1-2 cups chopped fresh tomatoes
3/4-1 tsp salt, or to taste
1 cup water
1 tsp sugar
2 cups cooked chickpeas
3 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
3 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro

Heat the oil in a heavy bottomed pan on medium high. Once hot, add the onion and cooked until softened, about 6-8 minutes. Add the garlic and all the dried spices and cook, stirring until fragrant – about 2 minutes (don’t let the spices burn!). Add the Passata, chopped tomatoes, water, salt, and sugar, and cook, covered on medium heat for 20 minutes.

Add the cooked chickpeas and cook a further 20-25 minutes,until the mixture is thick and the sauce has turned a dark shade of red. Before serving, stir in the fresh parsley and cilantro. Serve piping hot with or without a drizzle of quality olive oil.
