Jamaican Chickpea Stew

Jamaican Chickpea Stew will rock the boat. Your boat. It’ll rock your boat.

Jamaican Chickpea Stew

You know what we could all use a little more of in life? Jamaican food. Have you ever tried it?

I’ve seen recipes for Jamaican Jerk such and such and Jamaican-spiced wooptyloop, and wondered for the longest time what all of that meant.

I finally did some research on the cuisine when I set out to make this recipe for Oh My Veggies. I learned that Jamaican food uses a lot of seasoning, which speaks to my heart strings because I’m a sucker for big, spice-centric flavor. You can saunter over to OMV and learn all about Jamaican cuisine, but first: get a load of these onions:

This is my first ever attempt at Jamaican food and seriously, smalls, it ain’t no biggity big. As in it’s not a big deal to put together. But it is a big deal in your mouth.  If you’ve never tried Jamaican food, this is the perfect recipe for a first run at it. It’s straight-forward and all the spices shine through with warm flavor.

This Jamaican Chickpea Stew takes about a split second to make. I guarantee you already have all of the ingredients stashed in your zombie apocalypse/New World Order pantry. So you could get up and go make it right now. We could call this the Get Up and Go Stew.

…which would be the perfect double-meaning title because after you get up and go make this, you’ll need to get up and go…

I double dog dare you to get up and go make this. Head over to Oh My Veggies to snag my Jamaican Chickpea Stew recipe.

      Glad you’re a Jamaican food lover! I can’t wait to try out more recipes and wouldn’t complain if a Jamaican restaurant opened in town 😀

    Congrats again on the great recipe! Loving the flavours, and I’m a Jamaican living in Jamaica! We have many restaurants here that are vegetarian, serving well seasoned food that means you won’t miss the meat! If you visit give me a holler 🙂 !

      Awww Thanks so much, Jessica!!! I can’t tell you how thrilled I was to receive your comment at OMV because I had someone get a little snarky over the fact that there are no scotch bonnet peppers in the recipe, haha! I would LOVE to cruise over to Jamaica one of these days, and heck yes, I will let you know when that happens! Thanks a million again! xoxo
