Crock Pot Vegetarian Chick Pea Chili Recipe
by Asha Sharma
(Pittsburgh, PA, USA)
2 cups of fresh chickpeas
1 garlic chopped (or 2 tsp garlic powder)
1/2 inch ginger chopped (or 1 tsp ginger powder)
2 tomatoes chopped (can use 1 can of diced)
1 full onion chopped
1 tsp chili powder
2 tsp coriander
1 tsp garam masala powder or 1 tsp pepper (optional)
1 tsp turmeric
2 tsp butter
Salt to taste
Combine all ingredients into the crockpot, cover with water about 2 inches above.
Cook on high for 6 - 8 hours.
If you find mixture too thin, you can always thicken, by smashing a few chickpeas
I used fresh ingredients, but you can also substitute with canned or powdered (as mentioned) If you use canned chick peas, cook for 3 - 4 hours on low.
This is such a delicious healthy crock pot recipe, loaded with proteins.
Serve with rice, naan bread, bread or cus cus.
Tip: Adding turmeric to all your recipes, can boost your immunity.
