In a skillet or stove-top safe slow cooker pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Sauté the onions until they are soft, translucent and just starting to brown at the edges, about 7-9 minutes. Add the garlic and ginger cooking until fragrant, about 1 minute.
Transfer the onions to the slow cooker. Add the cumin, paprika, coriander, cinnamon, ginger, harissa, chickpeas, tomatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots, red peppers, lentil, vegetable broth and water.
Cook on high for 3-4 hours or on low for 6-7 hours.
