i finally made alison roman’s chickpea stew this weekend, and it was just as promised – easy, inexpensive, and delicious.  i made a few changes to the receipe:  spinach instead of kale, 1 cup of coconut milk instead of 2; and parsley instead of cilantro because that’s all i had.  a little squeeze of lime to top it off.  perfect for a cold winter’s night.
