Preparation steps


Peel and chop sweet potatoes and potatoes. Cook in a pot of salted water over medium heat until tender, about 10 minutes. Then drain, mash with 1 tablespoon of oil and season with salt and pepper.


Meanwhile, peel and chop the onion and garlic. Clean carrots and tomatoes, wash and cut into small cubes. Clean spinach, wash and shake dry.


Heat the remaining oil in a frying pan. Saute onion and garlic in it over medium heat for about 2-3 minutes. Add carrots and saute for about 7 minutes. Then add chickpeas to the vegetables and saute for 3 minutes. Add tomatoes and tomato paste and continue to cook for 5 minutes. Then add 3 ounces water, soy cream, and spinach and mix in. Season vegetables with coriander, cumin, chili flakes, thyme, salt, and pepper.


Place chickpea vegetables in a large baking dish. Spread mashed potatoes over vegetables and sprinkle with breadcrumbs and rosemary. Bake in preheated oven at 200 °C / 400˚ F for about 10 minutes until golden brown. Wash parsley, shake dry and chop. Remove pie from oven, sprinkle with lemon zest and parsley and serve.
