Smoked paprika is an essential ingredient in Spanish cuisine: its distinctive flavor and beautiful color bring plenty of vibrant character to numerous dishes. Here, we’re using it in a blend with cumin and turmeric (in a nod to the region's North African influences) to give our hearty chickpea and potato stew warming depth. For a sweet lift, we're also adding in the juice of a pixie mandarin—a late-season citrus variety. Chefs, be sure to stir your garlicky aioli into each bowl of stew for a touch of welcome creaminess.

Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Medium dice the potatoes. Cut off and discard the root ends of the scallions; thinly slice, separating the white bottoms and green tops. Separate the chard leaves and stems; roughly chop the leaves and thinly slice the stems, keeping them separate. Drain and rinse the chickpeas. Halve the mandarin; squeeze the juice into a bowl. Peel and finely chop the garlic; using the flat side of your knife, smash until it resembles a paste (or use a zester). Roughly chop the almonds.

Turn off the heat and season with salt and pepper to taste.
