This Spiced Chickpeas and Sweet Potato recipe is a sure-fire comfort dish for those colder months when something hearty and nutritious is calling.

The best bit about this meal is that we’ve suggested toasting slices of our Baker Street Rye & Wheat Bread for it, so that you can dunk them into the dish for an extra little treat.

You don’t have to toast our Rye & Wheat Bread, but we think lightly toasting them for a couple of minutes is the best way to serve them.

Our rich and hearty Rye & Wheat Bread is light in texture, low in fat and a good source of fibre, making it a light and tasty accompaniment to this Spiced Chickpeas and Sweet Potato dish.
