Eating Clean Slow Cooker Saucy Pineapple Chickpeas

  • 3 cups cooked chickpeas (from can or from dried)
  • 1 can tomato paste
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 3 T maple syrup
  • 2 T soy sauce (or alternative)
  • 1 T chili powder
  • 1 sweet onion chopped
  • 2 carrots peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 fresh pineapple chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves minces
  • 1 inch knob of ginger minced
  • 2 cups green beans or sugar snap peas
  • 2 red peppers chopped
  1. Throw first 11 ingredients into slow cooker, put on low for 6 hours
  2. Add green beans and red peppers, cook on low for additional hour

Notes: To have peppers and green beans/sugar snap peas tender crisp, don't put them in at the beginning of the cook time, but rather, closer to the time of serving. This way, they get slightly cooked, but still crunchy!

Serve over rice! Yummy!
