How to Make It
Pre-heat the slow cooker if necessary.
Heat the oil in a saucepan and add the turkey pieces, browning all over. Place into the slow cooker.
Add the onion, carrot, celery, parsnip and garlic to the saucepan (add a little more oil if necessary). Stir over a medium heat for 5-6 minutes until softened a little.
Add the cumin, turmeric, ground coriander, cinnamon and paprika and stir well for 1 minute.
Add the tinned chickpeas, stock, salt and pepper and bring to a simmer.
Pour into the slow cooker over the turkey, making sure the meat is under the liquid and place the lid on. Cook on low for 6-7 hours on high.
Serve with couscous and a sprinkling of the coriander.
