a heavy kettle cook the onions and the garlic in the oil over moderate
heat, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are golden, add the bell
peppers, and cook the mixture, stirring, for 10 minutes. Add the chick-peas
with the cooking liquid, the kale, the tomatoes with the juice, the tomato
paste, the chili powder, the thyme, the oregano, the red pepper flakes, the
cumin, the sugar, and the bay leaf, bring the liquid to a boil, and simmer
the stew, stirring occasionally, for 1 hour. Discard the bay leaf, season
the stew with salt, and serve the stew on the couscous or rice. Makes
about 14 cups, serving 8 to 10.
