A super quick Spanish stew that's ready in 20 minutes
Daily Dish: Spanish chickpea stew is an ideal midweek winter meal
Healthy Spanish chickpea stew.
This is a simple, quick dish to make that also freezes well. It is super tasty and nutritious – an ideal midweek winter meal. It serves two people and is ready in 20 minutes. This can also be cooked for a few hours in a slow cooker on low.
Bragg Liquid Aminos is an unfermented alternative to soy and Worcestershire sauce, made from the protein of soy beans. You can buy it in most health food shops and it adds a great depth of flavour to many dishes. I add it as a seasoning instead of soy sauce or tamari. It is slightly less salty and a bit sweeter than soy sauce.
Here are a few variations: For a spicy, meaty flavour, add some nduja. You could add chicken, chorizo or prawns to this dish to mix it up too. Or you could add extra beans if you wish.
Serve the stew in a bowl, topped with basil and live yoghurt and a slice of sourdough bread to mop up the juices. This keeps well in the fridge and the flavours improve with time.
