Here's a very healthy, super tasty meal to warm your tummy.

Chickpea Stew

4 brown onions (or use Spanish onions), chopped
1 cup water
2 containers cherry tomatoes, half are sliced in half
1 cup chicken stock
1 garlic clove, chopped
1 red chilli, chopped, with or without seeds
2 tins chickpeas, drained
1 tbsp turmeric
2 handfuls baby spinach leaves
½ lemon, juiced
Olive bread, garlic dip or aioli, optional
Danish feta, crumbled

Using a stove

In a large heated saucepan, add oil and onions. Cook until soft, and then add water. Add cherry tomatoes and chicken stock. Reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer for 20 minutes with lid on, until liquid reduces and ingredients are soft. Add garlic, red chilli, chickpeas and turmeric. Stir together.

Add a pinch salt and pepper and stir. Replace lid back on for 10 minutes. Increase the heat then turn heat off. Add baby spinach leaves. Mix through and add lemon juice. Serve on toasted olive bread topped with garlic dip or aioli and crumble feta on top. 

Lemon wedges and cracked pepper. Nice without bread too! 

Using a slow cooker

Place all ingredients in slow cooker. Cook on low for 1 hour or on high if you need to cook if faster. Check occasionally so it doesn’t stick to the bottom and stir. Add water and extra chicken stock.

Serve on plates and crumble Danish feta on top. Very healthy. Super tasty!
