Vegan Gambian Peanut Chickpea Stew (Domoda) with Instant Pot Instructions

As the weather gets cooler (maybe not for a long time), all I keep thinking about is this Vegan Gambian Peanut Chickpea Stew. Based on a groundnut stew called Domoda, it is the perfect quick, plant-based weeknight meal especially for those fall chilly nights. Plus, the leftovers get better as they sit. We love that #thecuttingveg #eatrealfood #soup #africanfood #plantbased #vegan

If you have been following me on Instagram or reading my recipes, I think y’all recognize that I LOVE me a good stew. Even in the summer, when everyone else just wants salad or some grilled chicken, I say bring on those roasty toasty kind of meals. Those meals that taste good sitting in fridge for a couple of days, the spices all mulling about for and playing off of each other. Those meals where you enjoy them more sitting in your leggings crossed legged on the couch with your fav blanket. Oh yeah.

It gets me tickled just THINKING about it.

Moroccan Chickpea Stew

Please tell me it’s not just me.

Stew-y Chickpeas with Tomatoes, Capers, and Grilled Halloumi

Oh hey, look, another chickpea recipe! 

And it’s a recipe that just screams summer, which we all need right now because Monday is not the most summer-y day of the week. Ok ok, for real though, I feel like Mondays just require fun food, you know? Just something to push us into the thralls of the week ahead. Especially after testing some pretty dicey mango recipes yesterday and feeling like I had the ultimate sugar rush.

One might say I’m part mango now.

Coconut Beans and Greens with Sriracha Cashews

I am the kind of person who craves hot coffee in 95 degree weather.

Likewise, I am the kind of person who loves a big, steaming bowl of beans even as the temperature warms up. We are in awkward times, in the beginning of April, with the temperature balmy enough to wear cutoffs one moment and then raining and dropping 40 degrees the next.

The only thing comforting in this situation is a big pile of carbs.
