Eggplant & Chicpea Stew

Posted on

We received a crock pot as a wedding gift and I want to use it all winter long. There is something about placing ingredients into a big vat, turning on the heat, going to work and coming home to a finished product. I love it! Tonight’s dinner on the menu: eggplant & chicpea stew. The stew will be placed over a grain of choice, not sure what that will be, maybe quinoa.

Adapted from Eating Well


  • 1 28 ounce can diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup dried chic peas (boiled for 2 minutes, covered and soaked over night)
  • 2 large eggplants, peeled and diced
  • 1 package white mushrooms sliced
  • 2 medium onions diced
  • 3 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup vegetable stock
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 tsp parsley


  • Place all ingredients, mixed well, in crock pot on low setting for 8 hours.
  •  When chic peas are softened, stew is ready!
  • Serve over rice, quinoa, bed of sautéed spinach
  • ENJOY!
