It doesn’t have to be snowing to be blowing wet and nasty weather out there. Today was a good day to pull together the root vegetables from the farmers markets and make one of my favorite stews, Shurpa Lagman. It’s kind of hard to go wrong when you start out with a little beef, and add onion, turnips, rutabaga, parsnips and carrots. Something special happens with the flavors of tomato, cumin, chili flakes, and coriander meld. What I love best about this dish are the nutty globes of chickpeas generously dotting the bowl. So good, and so good for you.
