Chickpea & Carrot Stew

This is a chunky monkey of a stew that will fill you up, not fill you out. Get stuck in.

You will need:

  • 1 onion
  • 5 cloves of garlic
  • 5 carrots
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 400g tin of organic chickpeas (I like the Bunalun brand)
  • 1 400g chopped tomatoes
  • 200g green or brown lentils
  • 100g brown rice
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 tsp cinnamon • 2 tsp paprika • 1 tsp tumeric
  • 1 tblsp cumin • 2 tsp coriander • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1.5lt veg stock
  • Some chopped herbs like coriander or parsely

To make this:

  1. Chop the onions, garlic and carrots
  2. Add all to the pan with some salt and cook on a low heat for 15 minutes
  3. Drain and rinse the chickpeas and add to the pan
  4. Add the lentils, rice, tomatoes, lemon zest and juice and all the spices to the pan
  5. Add the stock and bring to the boil
  6. Then simmer gently for 30 minutes


Yours in health and happiness,
