Slow Cooker Chickpea, Tomato And Bacon Recipe
I love my slow cooker. It’s not so much a time saver as food still has to be prepared, but I do love being able to prepare the food at a time that suits me. I am very much a morning person, so a meal prepared early in the day, for me, takes half the time of one prepared later, when my energy levels are low..
The feeling I get when I place the lid on the slow cooker, knowing that a meal will be ready when my family start bleating for food, is one of immense satisfaction. If you know me you’d know that there have been times in the past when dinner was served just before breakfast. That was a long time ago, once the children started school I really had to get my act into gear.
Anyway, enough of the ramblings.
I wasn’t sure what to call this slow cooker chickpea, tomato and bacon recipe. It could be classed a soup, but I think it’s a little too hearty for that. You could, however, add extra water and turn it into a soup. Could it be classed a stew or a casserole? I’m really not sure, but does it really matter? Probably not.
Being high in protein and fibre, chickpeas do make a very satisfying and nutritious meal.
