  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Pinch crushed red pepper
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 large onion halved and thinly sliced
  • 3 sprigs fresh parsley tied together with kitchen string
  • 14.5 ounces fire-roasted diced tomatoes, undrained 1 can
  • 4 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1/2 pound carrots peeled and cut into 2-inch sticks (about 4 medium carrots)
  • 3/4 pound butternut squash peeled, seeded, and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 medium zucchini cut into cubes
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 14 ounces chickpeas, rinsed and drained 1 can
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds toasted


  • In a small bowl (custard cup sized), mix together turmeric, cinnamon, ginger, pepper, and crushed red pepper. Set aside.
  • Heat olive oil in stockpot over medium heat.
  • Add onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened and beginning to caramelize, about 15 minutes.
  • Stir in spice mixture and cook an additional 5 minutes.
  • Add parsley, tomatoes, and broth. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce heat to low and simmer 10 minutes.
  • Add carrots and butternut squash. Increase heat to medium-high, bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low, and simmer 10 minutes.
  • Add zucchini, raisins, and chickpeas. Cook until all vegetables are tender, about 10 more minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • To serve, remove parsley, ladle into bowls and sprinkle with toasted almonds.


If you want this to be a side dish, drain off some of the liquid.
