Moroccan Chickpea Stew. The. Best. Flavor. Slow cooker recipe. Simple. Easy. Amazing.
I love trying new recipes and bringing them to community dinners to share. This Moroccan Chickpea Stew is a delectable dish people appreciate. So flavorful and packed with goodness. Because there are several ingredients, it does take about 15 minutes to get it ready to cook, but it is well worth the effort!
Robin Robertson’s Recipe
The recipe is originally from Robin Robertson’s Fresh From the Vegetarian Slow Cooker. This was so delicious, as all of her recipes are. Everyone who tried it loved it, and the smell of it was very enticing. I served it over fresh raw kale, and that was the perfect finish. It is vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, and dairy-free, so just about anyone can eat it.
What You Need
For this recipe you will need measuring cups and spoons, a garlic mincer or knife, a vegetable peeler, and a slow cooker. Don’t scrimp. Buy the best you can afford. And while you’re at it, buy some beautiful dinnerware to serve you food on. You deserve it.
I know this is a slow cooker recipe, and y’all probably have one, but have you tried the Instant Pot? OMG. You can use it as a slow cooker, pressure cooker, rice cooker, sauté pot, and so much more. You could easily convert this recipe to Instant Pot! Really. Don’t wait. Get one.
