Spinach, Tomato & Chickpea Stew


I wanted a really fast soup this past week, something that was super healthy and really fast. I looked at the content of the fridge and had a bag os spinach that had to be used up. Like, it might have been one day past expiry. Sigh. That’s me and my bagged salads. I also wanted to try a stew. Thus, Spinach, Tomato & Chickpea Stew.

I absolutely love a fast, healthy soup for lunch when Fall hits. I don’t mind fussing around with a more complex soup for supper when I have time but when it comes to lunch, it has to be very fast and easy. I’m now busy homeschooling the kids during the day and wow, has my kitchen time gone down! I know that we only have the first month under our belt and that it’s going to get better and better, but for now, my kitchen time is spent running back and forth between helping them at the kitchen table and the stove.

I wanted thick, chunky spoonfuls of beans and veggies more than I wanted a thin broth.

This is it, folks.

Three out of four family members ate this (while of course, my daughter ate plain chickpeas that I set aside for her. Sigh.) and it was met with rave reviews. Even Mike who doesn’t like greens in his soup admitted that this was a pretty darn good lunch.

So fast doesn’t have to mean unhealthy or junky, fast can mean a very quick 20 minutes in the kitchen. If you like your chickpeas to be softer than they are out of the can, cook it longer. If not, this puppy is ready ASAP!

Happy Friday everyone! What are you up to this weekend?
