  • 2 cans of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 bunch of chard, roughly chopped
  • 1 can (14.5 oz) of diced tomatoes
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)


  1. Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat.
  2. Add the chopped onion and minced garlic to the pot. Sauté until the onion is translucent and the garlic is fragrant, about 3-4 minutes.
  3. Stir in the cumin and smoked paprika. Let the spices toast for about a minute to release their flavors.
  4. Add the diced tomatoes (with their juices) and vegetable broth to the pot. Bring the mixture to a simmer.
  5. While the tomato mixture is simmering, use a food processor to pulse half of the chickpeas until they are roughly mashed.
  6. Add both the whole and mashed chickpeas to the pot. Stir to combine all the ingredients.
  7. Stir in the chopped chard. Allow it to wilt down, about 5 minutes.
  8. Season the stew with salt and pepper to taste. Adjust the seasoning as needed, tasting as you go.
  9. Let the stew simmer for an additional 10-15 minutes, until all the flavors have melded together and the chard is tender. Occasionally stir the pot.
  10. Serve the stew hot, garnished with fresh parsley. Ladle into bowls and add a final touch with a sprinkle of parsley.

There you have it! A delicious, nutritious, and low-carb Chickpea and Chard Stew that's perfect for any night of the week. Enjoy this hearty meal with your loved ones, and feel good about the wholesome ingredients you're serving up. Bon appétit!
