Yes, I know it's Superbowl Sunday and if you're using the slow cooker today it's probably not for a healthy Meatless Monday dish like this Crockpot Chickpea Stew with Balsamic Caramelized Onions from Cookin' Canuck.  But the Superbowl only lasts one day and I think this sounds like a delicious meatless main dish for anyone who's looking for some healthy food on Monday morning!  Or if you don't care about the whole Meatless Monday thing, eat it for a delicious side dish, but don't skip Dara's method of caramelizing the onions before they go in the slow cooker; I can tell this would add amazing flavor to the finished stew. 

Ingredients for this recipe: 
  • Olive oil
  • sliced onions
  • water
  • oregano
  • balsamic vinegar
  • canned diced tomatoes
  • kalamata olives
  • canned chickpeas
  • crumbled Feta cheese
  • Italian Parsley

  1. Thanks so much for featuring my recipe, Kalyn! This is one of my favorites and I always make a double batch so that I can freeze the leftovers.

  2. Dara, I can see why it would be a fave, and great idea to make enough to freeze. In fact, I think this could only get better if the flavor of the onion gets infused into the beans longer!
