Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.

Toss chickpeas with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Spread out the chickpeas on a baking sheet and roast until just golden brown. About 15 minutes. Set aside.

In a small bowl add all the dry ingredients under the spice rub. Set aside.

Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a medium pot over medium heat.

Add chopped onions, allow to sauté for 2 minutes, before adding the ginger, garlic and the whole habanero. Do not pierce the habanero. Cook until soft.

Stir in the spice mixture and allow the raw flavor to cook off for about 3 minutes.

Add in the tomato sauce. Cook for 3 minutes and add in the vegetable broth, sweet potato, roasted chickpea, carrots and kale.

Season with salt and black pepper. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and allow to simmer for 30 minutes. Until the sweet potatoes are fork tender.

Remove the cover and allow the sauce to reduce and thicken.

Ladle stew into bowls and serve with a dollop of yogurt and sliced crusty bread.
