Chickpea Vegetable Stew

This is a quick and tasty soup. I like to use home-made chicken broth, but you can use store bought if you prefer. 


Recipe makes 4 servings. Serving size: about 2 cups.

Yield/Servings: 4 Serving Size: 1 bowl Total Cook/Prep time: 1 hour


  • 8 cups fat-free chicken broth
  • 1 onion (diced)
  • 4 gloves garlic (minced)
  • 5 celery stalks (sliced)
  • 2 large carrots (sliced)
  • 1 package frozen spinach (thawed and drained)
  • 2 cups chickpeas (canned - rinsed and drained)
  • spray of olive oil
  • salt and pepper


Heat the chicken broth in a medium pot on the stove (low heat)

While that is heating, in a separate pan sprayed with olive oil or cooking spray, add the onions (low to medium heat)

Sautee the onions for about 1 minute

Add the garlic and celery and continue to sautee 2 minutes more

Add the onions, garlic, celery and carrots to the pot of broth

Simmer about 1 hour or until the carrots and celery are completely cooked

Add the spinach and chickpeas during the last 10 minutes of cooking
