Recipe Ingredients for Squash, Chickpea & Red Lentil Stew

3/4 cup dried chickpeas
2 pounds butternut squash, peeled, seeded and cut into 1-inch cubes
2 large carrots, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 large onion, chopped
1 cup red lentils
4 cups water
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 tablespoon minced ginger
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon saffron
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1/4 cup lime juice
1/4 cup cilantro leaves, chopped

Recipe Directions for Squash, Chickpea & Red Lentil Stew

  1. 1. Soak chickpeas in enough cold water to cover them by 2 inches for 6 hours or overnight. (Alternatively, use the quick-soak method: Place beans in a large pot with enough water to cover by 2 inches. Bring to a boil over high heat. Remove from heat and let stand for 1 hour.) Drain when ready to use.

  2. 2. Combine the soaked chickpeas, squash, carrots, onion, lentils, broth, tomato paste, ginger, cumin, salt, saffron and pepper in a 6-quart slow cooker.

  3. 3. Put on the lid and cook on low until the chickpeas are tender and the lentils have begun to break down, 5 to 6 1/2 hours.

  4. 4. Stir in lime juice. Serve sprinkled with peanuts and cilantro.
