This is the best Chickpea Stew Gluten-Free Vegan ever! It is hearty and comforting, tastes delicious with rice. While we are on the subject of comforting and hearty stews, check out my Black Bean and Butternut Squash Stew which is a huge hit!

I have been so busy lately, it’s been a roller coaster ride since our move to Ohio. So many wonderful things are happening to our family and we feel so grateful for the abundance of blessings that are coming our way. I have been delaying putting up new recipes because it’s been so difficult for me to decide which ones go on my website and which ones go in my cookbook.
Yes! you heard me, my cookbook is almost ready. I can’t keep the silence any longer and want to share with you all that I have been up to. Moving here has given me long hours of being able to experiment in my kitchen. Don’t get me wrong where I lived in Virginia was also quiet but in a different way. Devannah started college in January but did most of her classes online. Here she goes to college full time so it’s just Daevyd and myself at home.
In order for me to focus on the cookbook, I had to narrow down my skincare orders to private customers.

I’m also currently enrolled in the Institute of Integrative Nutrition to be a Certified Health Coach. I’m learning how to better work one and one with my clients to motivate them to achieve better overall health-More on this to come.

Well enough on me. This chickpeas stew is simple to make and delicious. Chickpea is low in fat, a good source of protein, fiber, vitamin B6 and iron. They increase bowel health, aid in weight loss and lower cholesterol.

    I love that this is a vegan and gluten free recipe. I have a friend who is vegan and a daughter who has to eat gluten free so I could fix this for both of them.

    Hi! I just made this and it’s really good! Thank you! I was wondering how many calories do you think this might be?

    • Michelle Blackwood

      Hello Rupica, I’m so happy you loved it and thank you for your feedback. I don’t know how many calories are in the recipe but you can find calorie calculators online such as myfitnesspal, loseit and fatsecret.

      • I am trying to lose about 10lbs so I am in calorie counting mode! I happened to enter this recipe Into my fitness pal and its approx 135 calories a serving. :)

        • Michelle Blackwood

          That’s so cool, I love my fitness pal. The key is to eat as much whole foods as possible. All the best in your journey!

    I am so happy to have found your recipe for chickpea stew that does not have the traditional cumin or curry but rather my favorite Italian spices. I prepared this for my dinner tonight and LOVED it! Although I followed the recipe exactly this time, I think it could be easily adapted to include whatever veggies are in season. In the future, I will try adding broccoli, green beans or maybe even some hardy greens such as kale or collards. Thanks again for a great recipe. It will definitely become one of my “go-to” recipes!

    • Michelle Blackwood

      Charlene, thank you for your feedback.I’m so happy you enjoyed my recipe. Adding veggies sound like a great idea, next time I’ll do that too!

  19. This looks awesome and I have just about everything! As I’ll only be cooking this for myself I was wondering if anyone has tried to keep this in the freezer for a bit. Any thoughts?
    Thanks!

    I made this but with modifications. It was a little flat so I added a can of drained diced tomatoes. I added extra tomato paste but still wanted more thickness so I added some nutritional yeast. I also chopped up a few kale leaves, just because I had it hanging around.

    • Michelle Blackwood

      Thanks for your feedback Kat, love your modifications especially the kale. I normally add pepper when it’s too flat. If the recipe is not thick enough, I cook a little longer or add starch (arrowroot, tapioca, corn, potato) mixed with water.

    This recipe looks great. I am cooking for my mother as well who has just stated that she is tired of eating black beans & kidney beans so this tasty looking recipe is a must try for us. I am very excited by what I see at this web site so I will be telling my health educator & friend about this. I will also share with my weekly health group. Thanks!!!

  22. I only have one can of chickpeas, could I use one can of chickpeas and a can of white beans such as cannelloni beans? I’m really wanting to make this tonight so I’d love if I could make do!!

  23. I was a little sketchy about this recipe just because it was vegan (I love meat), but I made it anyways and was very happy with the outcome! Very delicious! My kids even liked it. And also instead of using tomato paste I used red curry paste, so good. Thank you will definitely make it again.

    • Michelle Blackwood

      I’m so glad you took the chance Jeannette and made the recipe. Very happy that your kids liked it. Thanks for your feedback!

  24. Brianna Franzese

    I just wanted to THANK YOU for this recipe. I have made it a few times already and love it. I like to triple the veggies, add spinach, mushrooms or celery, extra tomato paste and I love having it on hand in the freezer. The brown rice complements the stew so well.

    • Michelle Blackwood

      Thank you Brianna, for your feedback. I”m happy you are loving it. Your variations sound so healthy. I need to make extra and freeze the next time I make it as well.

  25. This was delicious.I didnt have tomato paste so I used strained tomatoes insteas of the paste and water. I also added curry and fresh herbs. Amazing. Will make again.

    • Michelle Blackwood

      Awesome, so glad you enjoyed it. Love the addition of curry and fresh herbs. Thanks for your feedback Violet!

  26. So my husband and I decided to go vegan after watching the Forks Over Knives documentary on Netflix. I stumbled onto your recipe through pinterest. I made it for our dinner tonight and it was phenomenal. I can’t wait to try your other recipes because they look super yummy.

    • Michelle Blackwood

      That’s a great documentary Renee, congrats to you and your hubby. I’m so happy you enjoyed my recipe. All the best on your journey and thank you so much for your feedback!

  27. This recipe has become one of my regulars on rotation since I discovered it a couple months ago. It’s so easy to keep these ingredients on hand. Thanks!

  28. I was really excited to try this stew and it did not disappoint! Delicious, flavorful recipe! It is very hearty, great for a cold night. Thank you for sharing! It’s easy to make too. The only problem I had with it is that I probably ate four bowls! :l I will definitely make again.

    I’m making this right now. Just did a taste test and it’s delicious!! I’m sure I’ll be making this again & again!

    This recipe is awesome. I was just wondering if I made a batch could I freeze it with some rice? Would it turn soggy?

    • Michelle Blackwood

      Thank you Kaleigh, I have done frozen rice and beans before and they were fine. I haven’t tried freezing this recipe.
