This is a great budget friendly family dinner for you to enjoy that’s packed full with goodness. Introducing my Moroccan chickpea stew! It’s so forgiving and easy to do you can’t go wrong. Plus a one-pot meal makes this a favorite with whoever ends up doing the washing.
As we are a dairy free household, chickpeas are great as they are brilliant for bone health. Being rich in manganese, they help build bone structure. They also contain bone-healthy minerals including calcium, phosphorus and magnesium. Furthermore they are a great source of fiber. If I use canned beans I always go for organic and BPA free tins.
This dish is full of goodness and includes loads of fresh ingredients including tomatoes, onions, garlic, capsicum and spinach. Jazzed up with Moroccan herbs and stock to pack in some great flavor. For extra healing properties I use homemade chicken bone broth to replace the vegetable stock if I have some handy.
I used to puree this stew when my son was very young and 2 years later he still loves it. I highly recommend you try this super easy and budget friendly dinner! Keeps in the fridge for a few days and freezes well.
