Spiced Chickpea Stew

Today, when I was looking for delicious recipes for you, I found this spiced chickpea stew recipe that will definitely be on my and your top 10 list. YOU HAVE TO TRY IT!

When I look at my top 10 list of vegan recipes, I see chickpea recipes in many places. The funny thing is, I hated chickpeas when I was a kid. I hated a lot of legumes like peas, chickpeas, and a few others. My mother always made me eat them. She always said, “Legumes are healthy, you have to eat them. ” Today, chickpea recipes are my favorite recipes. Always listen to your mother!

Are chickpeas healthy?

For vegetarians and vegans, legumes are a good source of iron. With 6 milligrams, the dried chickpeas contain a lot of trace elements. With 2. 2 milligrams, the can-based variant also makes an important contribution to blood formation and oxygen transport.
Dried chickpeas impress with calcium (124 milligrams) and phosphorus (332 milligrams). The balanced combination strengthens bones and teeth.

You can also make chickpea flour from chickpeas. Chickpea flour is good for baking. The flour can be used alone or mixed with other types of flour. The proportion of carbohydrates is still high, but overall it shows a more basic effect. The risk of acidification of the body can be positively influenced by basic foods. The stressful side effects of acidification, such as heartburn, can be reduced with chickpeas.
