Cook the butternut squash stew
- Peel and thinly slice enough onion to measure 1½ cups [3 cups].
- Rinse the chickpeas.
In a large frying pan [large sauce pot] over medium-high heat, warm 2 to 3 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the tomato paste and cook until caramelized, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in the turmeric spice blend and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
Add the butternut squash and 1½ cups [2½ cups] water and bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Cover and cook until the squash is tender, 15 to 18 minutes. Stir in the chickpeas and cook until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper. While the stew simmers, prepare the farro.
