Chickpea Stew

My friend from Ghana gave me this recipe for Chickpea Stew, and I can never get enough of it, and it is super-healthy.  Maybe you’ll like it as much as I do!

I buy dry chickpeas in the bag, but you can buy them in the can and rinse/drain them.  The way I make this:

1 pound of dried chickpeas

2 big onions, diced

5 cloves of garlic, sliced thin

2 T olive oil

Salt and pepper to taste

Large can of diced tomatoes


Soak the chickpeas overnight, then cook until tender (a couple of hours). Drain.  In large pot, warm olive oil. Add onions, garlic, salt and pepper and let onion soften.  Add 2 cups of chickpeas and let flavors mix.  Add undrained can of diced tomatoes and simmer until liquid is evaporated, 30 to 60 minutes.


This is delicious as is.  If you desire, add a can of tuna on top.  I have done it with smoked salmon on top and it was delicious!

You will have a bunch of leftover chickpeas.  I use them to make NEWAY hummus, chili and/or chickpea chocolate chip cake.
