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!
