Vegan Chickpea Stew recipe tastes delicious with rice. While we are on the subject of comforting and hearty stews, check out my Vegan Jackfruit StewBlack Bean and Butternut Squash Stew which is also a huge hit!

This chickpeas stew is simple to make and delicious. It is a spiced chickpea stew but not too spicy you can always up the cayenne pepper.

It 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 added diced carrots to make it a vegetable and chickpea stew. You can also add your favorite veggies like zucchini, eggplant or spinach.
