Curried Chickpeas and Vegetables

This has become one of our favorite vegetarian meals. Chana dal is one of my favorite Indian restaurant dishes, but if you make it you need to make some kind of vegetable side. This has all of the vegetables already in, so you can just make one dish, with rice. We like this so much we could easily have it every other week.

1 tbsp. olive oil
1 onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced or pressed
1 small sweet potato, cubed
1 carrot, sliced
1 cup tomato sauce
1/2 cup water
1 cup broccoli florettes
2 cups cooked chickpeas
1/2 tsp sea salt
1-2 tsp ground cumin
1-2 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp cinnamon
pinch cayenne

Heat oil in pot. Add onion and garlic and saute until soft. Add sweet potatoes, carrots, spices, tomato sauce, and water. Stir well. Bring to a boil, then lower heat and simmer, uncovered, until vegetables are
slightly soft (about 20 minutes). Add broccoli and chickpeas, and simmer, covered, until broccoli is bright green (just a few minutes).
