More Curried Chickpeas!

Slow Cooker Lentil and Chickpea Stew
{not to be confused with the original chickpea curry}


2 tablespoons grapeseed oil
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
3 medium chile peppers, chopped
4 cloves garlic, chopped
2 teaspoons garam masala
2 (15-ounce) cans garbanzo beans (chick peas),* drained and rinsed
1/2 cup dried red lentils
1 (28-ounce) can pureed diced tomatoes
2 cups vegetable stock
1/4 cup pitted black olives
1/2 cup coconut milk


Heat oil in a pan and sauté the onions. Add peppers, garlic, garam masala and cook until peppers begin to soften. Combine everything except the coconut milk in the slow cooker and cook on low 8 to 10 hours. Add coconut milk about 15 minutes before serving.
Serve over rice.

I found this recipe from Whole Foods and changed just a few things. {grin} Now we have TWO delicious curried chickpea recipes!

Enjoy! Just don't dump it in your lap! Ha!

  9. chile peppers and curry are one of the unhealthiest things you can eat - spices and chile are extremely high in salicylates and can have an ototoxic effect.

    Recent understanding of child health and allergies is increasingly recognizing the need for children to have a diet low in salicylates as children are hypersensitive to salicylates.

    Salicylates have been linked to the development of all sorts of problems in children such as: abdominal pain, aching legs, asthma, bed wetting, ear Infections, fatigue, persistent cough, physical sluggishness, rhinitis, sinusitis, sleep disorders, skin problems, stomach irritation, accident proneness, Attention deficit Disorder, ADHD, Asperger's Syndrome, Autism, anxiety or agitation for no reason, bouts of excessive energy followed by fatigue, confused thinking, depression, distraction, dyslexia, erratic sleep pattern, excessive or constant talking (hyperlexia), hyperactivity, impatience, lack of concentration, memory problems, mental sluggishness, self-isolating behaviour, mood swings, nervousness, sudden bouts of paranoia, poor self image, sudden highs, temper flare ups.

    Since I put my son on a low-salicylate (and gluten-free, dairy-free) diet three years ago he has improved massively and no longer has any of the above problems. Schools in the UK are now advising that all parents put their children on a low-salicylate diet as they have seen the massive improvements in children who have a low-salicylate diet.

  10. oh yummy 0 can I just sneak over to your house the next time you make this - do you think anyone will notice??


Thank you for blessing me with your words!
