Method

  1. Heat the oil in a medium deep frying pan or casserole, then add the peppers and cook for 4 minutes until blistered in places. Reduce the heat to medium, then add the potatoes and paprika. Cook, stirring regularly, for 8 minutes.
  2. Add the garlic, tomato purée and parsley stems, then cook for another minute. Stir in the stock and chickpeas and bring to the boil. Simmer for 10-12 minutes until the potatoes are tender.
