Health Rating


3 medium Carrots (grated)
3 medium stalk(s) Celery (grated)
1 1/2 cup Chickpeas, raw (soaked in excess water over night)
1 dash Chili powder
3/4 cup Extra virgin olive oil
1/2 medium leek(s) Leek (bottom 10 cm of one stalk)
1 large Red onion
1 medium Tomato (skinless)
1 tsp Rosemary, fresh (fresh leaves)
1/2 tsp Salt


In a large saucepan, sauté onions in olive oil on medium heat. Add celery, carrots, leaks and mix for 2 minutes.

Add chickpeas (previously soaked overnight, or canned) and stir for 1 minute. Add excess hot water (1 inch above chickpea mixture), herbs and salt. Reduce the heat to low, cover and let it cook for 1-1.5 hours - or until chickpeas are of desired consistency. Stir every 15 - 20 minutes. May need to add more hot water during cooking.

If stew is too watery, uncover the saucepan to allow the water to evaporate until desired thickness is achieved.
