If you can’t find kohlrabi, buy a small savoy or green cabbage. You will need about 1-pound. Cut it into quarters with the core trimmed out. Add to the stew in step 3.
If you don’t have root ginger or a cinnamon stick on hand, use 1 teaspoon each of ground ginger and cinnamon.
If you make your own chickpeas, remove any aromatics and reserve the broth to use in step 1 instead of water or commercial stock. It will give the stew extra flavor. If you used a chipotle pepper to make your beans, don’t add any more to the stew.
If you like your food spicy, mix some harissa (North African chili paste) to taste into a ladleful of the stew’s broth, and pour it over your plate.
