When was the last time I made this? Exactly this? Never! I did make something similar in May except that I used white beans instead of chickpeas and different dark leafy greens. The great thing about this legume and vegetable stew is that it is endlessly adaptable and every rendition is delicious! Here it is bubbling on the stove.
Today I put in some of our daughter’s fava beans plus zucchini and cabbage and then finished it with some kale salad mix. As it gets hotter I will jettison the pasta and turn it into a raw salad. I am sure we eat some version of this every month! When I ask John to tell me a meatless dish he would like to have he invariably wants “that chickpea stew thing you make.”
And, we have leftovers for lunch!
