Chickpea, Carrot, Tomato and Kohlrabi Stew

Chickpea, Carrot, Tomato and Kohlrabi Stew

I thought it'd be great to share a good old comfort recipe with you. I consider this to be a pleasant food as well as a humble meal all at the same time that screams for hot baked bread. Torn instead of sliced, straight out the oven. In all honesty, it doesn't matter what you want to call it.

I say this, because it's an amazing tasting stew that's great to eat on a cold winter's day and it's also very nutritious. It's full of hearty and wholesome vegetables and kohlrabi.

Even though, the list of ingredients may seem long but the vegetables are cut into larger sized pieces so that it's doesn't take a long time to prepare. You can even find fresh pre cut vegetables at your local grocery store if you don't want to spend the time it takes to cut them.

The rest of the ingredients are pretty basic like chickpeas, tomato and kohlrabi. Of course, like most of my recipes it is customizable too. Meaning, you can play with the recipe, depending on what you have available in your refrigerator. Green peppers in place of onions, etc..

Whatever you want to do with it. Personally, I didn't change anything when I made it. I left it just the way it is. The chickpeas added protein, texture, and gave it a creamy beanie awesomeness. The thing I like about it is the flavor develops fast, there isn't much cooking involved, I can make it a soup or a stew and be eating it in less than 60 minutes.

A little side note... I'm not really sure if this was the type of food peasants ate or not. But, I can picture a loving family sitting down and eating a delicious hot meal, on a cold winter night that was created using the things they grew on their own land with their bare hands.

There would be a fire burning in the fireplace and warm biscuits would be handed out around the table. If it was a little colder that's what we'd be eating tonight. However, we wouldn't enjoy the warmth of a fireplace because we don't have one.

It wouldn't matter to us though because we'd be happy just sitting around and spending a few happy hours with our family and friends. Catching up on old times and laughing at things we all did when we were younger.
