Holidays can be the ideal opportunity to bake a cake or bread, make a barbecue, prepare a stew that takes us longer or take a recipe in stride, fleeing from the rush that we carry around any other day of the week.

That is why we propose these eleven recipes with which you can enjoy cooking without haste, starting with a delicious chickpea stew spiced with turmeric and coconut milk.
