Tomato chickpea skillet sounds simple and not particularly exciting. At the same time, this fine recipe is full of flavors, makes you full and craving for more. I love chickpeas because they are so versatile and easy to work with. Admittedly, I use jarred or canned chickpeas very often because it’s so quick. With that said, you could also make them from scratch and soak the dried chickpeas first and then cook them. Ultimately, however, one usually does not have the time or patience for it and then I am happy about the variant from the jar. This dish is great for a quick and easy lunch or dinner and tastes great even cold. A dream!
Tomato chickpeas pan
Our skillet today is what we call a one-pot dish, which means we only need one pot for it. First, I sweat in it onion and spices in a little oil. To this I add dried tomatoes and deglaze the whole thing with a can of tomatoes and some water. Add to this some coconut blossom sugar, mustard and the cooked chickpeas. Of course, some green should not be missing and therefore I add baby chard.
I use chard because I discovered it by chance in the organic supermarket. However, spinach or kale will also work, depending on what you have on hand. Now the fine stew is allowed to boil down for another 15-20 minutes and then it’s ready to enjoy!
TIP: I use basmati rice as a side dish, preferably the whole grain variety, for an extra serving of fiber.

The complex dietary fibers provide long saturation and ensure that blood sugar remains stable for a long time and does not rise too much.
Tomatoes are almost taken for granted in our diet and that’s why we often forget how healthy they actually are. Researchers even advise daily consumption of tomatoes, as they are said to prevent cancer and reduce elevated blood lipid levels. Tomatoes have a high water content and are rich in important vitamins and minerals. Particularly valuable are the secondary plant substances, such as lycopene. . This is a pigment that the tomato produces to protect itself from harmful sunlight. These are intended to protect people from certain diseases. Ingenious, isn’t it?
