Recipe from: Eating Well

3 med. onions, halved and thinly sliced (about 3 C)
2 teaspoons ground cumin
2 teaspoons ground coriander
1 C orange juice
4 C reduced sodium vegetable broth
2 15-ounce cans chickpeas, rinsed
3 C peeled and diced sweet potato (about 1 lb.)
2/3 C basmati rice
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 C chopped fresh cilantro

Heat a pan with cooking spray over medium heat; add onions and cook, stirring often, until tender and well browned, 10 to 12 min. Add cumin and coriander and stir for about 15 seconds. Add orange juice and broth. Stir in chickpeas, sweet potato, rice and salt. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to a gentle simmer and cover. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the rice is tender and the sweet potatoes are breaking down to thicken the liquid, about 45 min. (the stew will be thick and will thicken further upon standing. Add more broth to thin, if desired, or when reheating.)
