Unforgettable chickpea stew recipe
Grain stews are the homemade recipes that we like the most and remind us more of the family. They are powerful, they feed wildly, and they work perfect when the weather is cold and/or rainy.
If we prepare a chickpea stew then even better. This is one of the grains that yield the most and practically anything you prepare with them is going to turn out well.
The best potajes of course, are those that have chorizo, bacon and other fun things about pork.
It is common to put blood sausage, I do not, but feel free to put this recipe.
For the rest, try to buy a quality chickpea. It is important that you put these grains in water from the day before so that they soften.
