When it's cold outside and I'm looking for comfort food, I always turn to a bowl stew. There's something so perfect about that hot bowl, especially when it's served up with a side of rice. It warms me up from the inside! The recipe below proves that stews don't have to be chock full of meat, and they don't have to take all day to make, either. This healthy chickpea stew is quick and easy while also being full of vitamins and other nutrients.
You can make your own chickpeas quickly using an Instant Pot, but I always keep a few cans in the pantry just in case. Some nights I don't have time to wait for the Instant Pot to pressurize and de-pressurize, so those cans really come in handy. You can look for the low sodium varieties if you're worried about keeping your salt levels down.
