Alkaline Diet Recipe #100: Oriental Vegetable Stew with Chickpeas

stew

For the first alkaline recipe in 2011 we chose this delicious, healthy and flavoursome vegetable stew. This recipe is very popular in Arabic countries due to its abundance of oriental spices.

This stew contains a range of alkalising vegetables such as peppers, carrots, potatoes, courgettes, onions and fresh chilli which are all packed with nutrients, vitamins and minerals. The use of a variety of spices give this stew a delicious taste and the chickpeas a crunchy texture.

We hope you enjoy this Arabic Vegetable Stew as much as we do!
