Here is the best comforting and hearty Chickpea Stew (Vegan, Gluten-free) ever! Made with simple ingredients from basic ingredients with an amazingly delicious taste that will keep you coming back for more!

Chickpea Stew (Vegan, Gluten-free)

It 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 also 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 am so excited to start a new facebook group, sharing lots of delicious vegan recipes, health tips etc. from our members, please join us at Vegan Recipes With Love! If you tried this recipe, please comment below and let us know how you like it. Also, please follow us on Instagram!

    Delicious looking! Are the calories with the brown rice?

    • Michelle Blackwood
      September 10, 2018

      Thank you Sheetal, Recently we upgraded to a new recipe card theme and so most of my nutritional data is at an incorrect default setting so I’m slowly going through each recipe and correcting them. So I just did from grams to portions. So calories don’t include the brown rice.

    August 4, 2018

    Wow – what a wonderful dish to make during summer when I have fresh basil and peppers growing. I prefer vegetables/legumes instead of meat and I particularly like chick peas. And I also must say this is a cheap recipe!! What’s not to like? This is going on my meal plan for this week. And one more thing — for the girl who posted that her family is allergic to tomatoes, I suggest substituting zucchini.

    • Michelle Blackwood
      August 4, 2018

      Thank you for your great feedback Becky, hope you enjoy it. It is definitely a cheap meal and I love your suggestion of substituting the tomato with zucchini.

    I’ve made this recipe twice now once using vegetable broth the other using the chickpea broth. I kind of like the vegetable broth better and each time I used Himalayan salt adding Turmeric. This is a simple easy delicious stew. Will be keeping this recipe for future use. Thank you for this recipe!

    • Michelle Blackwood
      July 29, 2018

      Stephanie, just leave it out and it should be fine. You can add some chopped fresh bell peppers or roasted ones.

  11. Becca
    July 25, 2018

    This stew was AMAZING. And so simple to make. The flavors were vibrant & I didn’t need to add extra. Leftovers the next day were 10x better too after the seasonings sat overnight. Will be making this again!

    • Michelle Blackwood
      July 26, 2018

      That’s great Becca, I’m very happy you enjoyed it. Yes leftovers are great.

    Nice recipe! I like the touch of cayenne to the end. I cook a chickpea stew at least once a week. However, I like to use turmeric and curry and instead of tomatoes I use coconut milk.

    • Michelle Blackwood
      May 8, 2018

      Thank you Frank, so happy with how you make the recipe yours. Loving your variation.

  20. Jen

    I added 1/4 tsp red pepper because it was bland. I also added a little S&P to each serving and definitely serve over rice. I thought it was great.

    • Michelle Blackwood
      April 5, 2018

      Thank you for your feedback Jen, yes salt and pepper boost flavors. Depends on the vegetable broth you used how much flavor you will end up with, apart from salt, I love to add extra, Italian seasoning. garlic powder, onion powder, and cayenne pepper. My recipe is just a guide for you to adjust according to your taste.

  21. Kristin

    Love this recipe and make it 2-4 times each month! I recently began counting calories; do you know the approximate size of a serving? Thanks!

    • Michelle Blackwood
      April 5, 2018

      I’m so happy you love it Kristin, I really appreciate your feedback and happy it is part of your meal rotation. For cooked beans, 1/2 cup is usually a serving. Since there about 3 cups then there should be about 6 servings.

    This was so delicious! I made twice the amount so that we’d have extra, and did fresh basil instead of dried, and also added curry powder (which was the best blast of flavor!). I also sautéed the onions and garlic. Thanks!

    • Michelle Blackwood
      February 13, 2018

    Loved it. I am learning to cook with dry beans, and my family doesn’t like hummus, but this recipe was a winner. Works for picky family. I did have to add a bit of milk to my youngest daughter’s to cool down the spice, but no problem.

    If I’m using canned chickpeas, how much tomato paste and water should i use? Is it better with or without tomato paste?

    • Michelle Blackwood
      January 24, 2018

      Hi Bianca, use 1 tablespoon tomato paste. If using the can including liquid (aquafaba) then add extra water to make 2 cups of liquid, so to explain more if you have about 1 cup of aquafaba then you will only need 1 cup of water. Hope this helps. Cook until the sauce thickens to your preference.

    This is an awesome recipe. I have made this so many times, I absolutely love it. I have chickpeas in soak as I write. I have told so many of my friends about it and given them the recipe. I have made it without the addition of brown rice and eaten it with cornbread and I have also made it and eaten it with the brown rice. No matter how I’ve made it, it is always a winner. Thanx so much for a great recipe.

    • Michelle Blackwood
      January 18, 2018

      Yvie thank you very much for your feedback, I’m so happy that you love it. I have had it with rice so I would love to try it with cornbread sounds really yummy!

    Okay so in November, I switched from Omni to vegan, and my husband did in December… We’ve found a lot of bad recipes, and always experience some skepticism when trying something new. BUT HOLY MOLY! This was suuuuper fast to prep (thanks to my One Second Slicer & my need to make and store chickpeas in bulk), so extremely flavorful & filling (not to mention, healthy!)! Thank you for our new addition to successful vegan recipes!!

    P.S. I didn’t see it, but maybe I missed it. I couldn’t find where I was supposed to add the cayenne, so I just added it at the end with the salt and pepper!

    • Michelle Blackwood
      January 14, 2018

      Courtney, thank you for your feedback. So happy you made the switch to a vegan diet and so sorry that you had some bad experiences with recipes and I’m happy you found my website and love the chickpea recipe. Sounds like I need to check out the One Second Slicer. Going to check the recipe for the cayenne now

    • Michelle Blackwood
      December 19, 2017

      Yes you saute onion, garlic, bell pepper, tomato, then add carrots, seasonings then chickpeas and liquid.

        January 4, 2018

        I am just about to make it with canned chickpeas but I am confused. Do I still need to heat them and their liquid first? Or am I just draining them and using the liquid later?

        • Michelle Blackwood
          January 4, 2018

          CC, you can use the aquafaba and add extra water or vegetable broth to make 2 cups, enjoy!

    I have a quick question about using dried chickpeas.
    When you are soaking them overnight do you place them in the fridge or leave them out overnight?

    • Michelle Blackwood
      May 11, 2017

      That’s a great question Christine, I have never put my chickpeas while soaking in the refrigerator because my home is pretty cool all year round. However is your home is hot especially in the summer months, it would be better to refrigerate so that your chickpeas don’t ferment. You can also use the quick soaking method, where you bring the chickpeas to boil and simmer for a couple minutes then turn off heat and allow to soak for 1 hour. Drain, add fresh water then proceed to cook until tender.

USUALLY, i have the ingredients already. of course, snowy day in nj and i wanted to make some and don’t have a tomato or red peppers. instead, i’ll leave out the peppers and use canned diced tomatoes. the other thing about this recipe is it really is a canvas where you can add just about anything to the base. but, i LOVE it just as written!!!! thanks for the wonderful recipe!!!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Can I use chicken broth instead of water? The recipe doesn’t need to be vegan for me…

    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
      August 29, 2016

      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.

    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.

    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!!!

    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
      July 31, 2016

      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.

  69. Aleena
    July 25, 2016

    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 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
