Hey folks, and welcome back to the blog! Today’s vegan and plant powered recipe is warm, nourishing, delicious, and packed full of nutrition. I would like to introduce you to the vegetable packed Vegan Chickpea Tater Stew!
This stew has some of my all-time favorite flu season ingredients: Carrots, Celery, Potatoes, Thyme, Oregano, Lemon, and vegetable broth. I always recommend finding a very high quality vegetable broth to use when making soups – it can be the difference between bland and delicious!
My favorite broth to use is the better than bouillon organic vegetable paste!
How easy is this healthy vegan recipe? All you need to do is:
Sauté – Boil – Simmer – Serve!
I think that this vegan stew is one of the easiest and most delicious vegan meals.
It might look like it’s just veggies and warm broth, however adding the chickpeas, or any other legume, makes it “A full meal” as my grandma would say. Because it adds the proteins necessary to make it a nutritious and balanced meal.
Also, it’s perfect for when you don’t have time to cook and it’s cold outside. Just toss in the ingredients and let it simmer away!
Finally, I love this kind of dish because you can make it with everything you have left in the kitchen.
You can add any vegetable you want, even the ones that don’t look so fresh anymore, this way nothing goes to waste!

Compostable & Unbleached Parchment Paper
The parchment paper by “If You Care” is unbleached, chlorine free, and compostable. I have used this up to the highest oven setting without any issues! Paper, in it’s natural state is beige or light brown. For years people have subjected it to a bleaching process to create the white sheets we all know and love.
Unfortunately, cleaning the paper is having the opposite effect on the environment. The most common bleaching agent – chlorine dioxide (ClO2) – occurs naturally as a component of salt, but once it separates from it’s natural pair it begins to cause problems. The paper bleaching process deposits chlorine in the lakes and streams where mills are most commonly located, and once there it bonds with organic matter in the form of dioxins. Dioxins are a group of highly toxic chemicals that are thought to pose negative effects on reproductive and immune system development, as well as cause several kinds of cancers. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, there is no safe level of dioxin exposure.
Reusable. Compostable. Cruelty-Free! Each wrap is made of unbleached certified organic cotton cloth infused with all-natural candelilla wax, pine resin, a pinch of soy wax and organic coconut oil. Plastic Free. Sustainable. Non-toxic. The bamboo lids are strong, durable and beautiful. They’re plastic free, BPA free, phthalate free, biodegradable and recyclable!
