In this recipe, we’re headed south—twice! First, to Southern India, where vadouvan hails from. It’s a spice mix similar to curry powder, but with a French-inspired dash of grated shallot. Next, we’re taking you to the American South. After sauteeing the vadouvan with aromatics, you’ll build a hearty stew with purple potatoes and collard greens. We think you’ll love this exciting blend of Southern cuisines.

  • 1 15-Ounce Can Chickpeas

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Heat a small pot of salted water to boiling on high. Medium dice the potatoes. Drain and rinse the chickpeas. Peel and mince the garlic. Cut out and discard the stems of the collard greens; roughly chop the leaves. Medium dice the tomato. Peel and small dice the onion. Pick the mint leaves off the stems; discard the stems. Using a peeler, remove the green rind of the lime, avoiding the white pith; mince the rind to get 2 teaspoons of lime zest. Quarter the lime.
