Who says that a great, hearty stew needs some kind of meat added to it? The recipe that follows proves that's just not true. It's chock-full of chickpeas and lentils to provide all the protein that's needed. In addition to the protein, it also has a ton of different spices and seasonings that give this dish a different kind of spin than a traditional stew.
Best of all, it's vegetarian. So whether it's made for someone following a vegetarian diet, or those that just need something for Meatless Monday, this recipe is a perfect fit. Of course, because chickpeas take the place of the meat, there's no browning or searing required. Everything goes into the pot and simply cooks to perfection.
