Vegan Recipe for Chickpea and Lentil Stew


  1. Begin by soaking one cup of dried green lentils and two cups of dried chickpeas overnight or at least for several hours to expedite cooking time.
  2. Once the legumes are softened, rinse them well thoroughly and set aside.
  3. In a large pot or Dutch oven, heat some oil over medium heat. Add onions, garlic, carrots, celery, and bell peppers until they start to become tender.
  4. Add in diced tomatoes, vegetable broth or water, bay leaf, thyme, cumin, coriander, salt, and black pepper to the pot. Stirring occasionally.
  5. Add in the soaked and drained lentils and chickpeas to the pot, along with chopped spinach or kale for added nutrition.
  6. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce heat to low and let it simmer for around 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the lentils and chickpeas are fully cooked and the flavors have melded together.
  7. Adjust seasonings as needed, such as adding more spices or tweaking the saltiness.
  8. Serve hot and enjoy your hearty, protein-packed vegan stew made with the combination of chickpeas and lentils that provide a satisfying meal for either meatless Mondays or any other day of the week.
  9. You can also add additional ingredients like diced potatoes, sweet potatoes, or zucchini to enhance the texture and variety of the stew. Additionally, feel free to experiment with different spice combinations or herbs based on your personal taste preferences.
