Expert Tips

This recipe doesn’t take any kind of meat and it’s still delicious; but if you’d rather add chorizo, sausage or tripe, the sauce will be thicker and just as tasty.

Ever since I learned how to make this simple recipe, I classified it as the perfect combination of nutrition, seasoning and delicious flavor. My cousin Mercedes, a Colombian nutritionist, taught me how to make it, and I remember when she clearly told me: “We have to go back to what’s natural, cousin. We have to go back to garbanzo beans.” And she was very right. Garbanzo beans are a great source of vitamins, proteins and minerals. They help tremendously in reducing bad cholesterol levels, strengthen bones, control blood glucose levels, etc. But, according to my cousin and as I have found myself, garbanzo beans are a powerful body cleanser and detoxifier. In other words, if for any reason you need to take any medication (for a cold, antibiotics, etc.), immediately add a hearty plate of this delicious vegetable to your diet. Your body will appreciate it. Yes, it is one of my favorite recipes, my family loves it and it’s very easy to make. I suggest you make it in the slow cooker, as this preserves the nutritional and medicinal properties of the garbanzo beans.

Don’t uncover the pot; this would take away 20 minutes of cooking time.

You can serve it with white rice, pasta or a simple lettuce and tomato salad.

Directions

  • 1 Place soaked garbanzo beans in slow cooker, add water and make sure they are not completely submerged; the water should just reach the level of the beans.
  • 2 Immediately stir in the onions, the garlic, the three peppers, the tomatoes and 3 tablespoons of olive oil. Stir everything carefully. Finally, add the tomato paste and the salt.
  • 3 Set your slow cooker on low heat for 4 hours.
