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