Autumn stew for body and soul

Our grandmothers still knew what is good for body and soul and yes, of course, there was nothing else back then and that's why there were certainly no strawberries on the table in December, but delicious, autumnal stew.

Everything went in there that the pantry had to offer, especially carrots, potatoes, beetroot, but also meat and bacon if available. Before there were stoves in the kitchen, the only way to cook was over a fireplace with a cauldron above it, and everything was forced into one pot. Therefore, a stew is also considered a dish for poor people.

That's exactly why stews are a bit frowned upon, but when you suddenly call them "One pot wonder" everyone is very enthusiastic. Stews are not only practical to prepare, they also warm you up from the inside with the right ingredients. On the one hand, this is due to the ingredients, on the other hand, it is also due to the preparation. If you suffer from cold feet like me, you should try this chickpea stew with chorizo and sweet potatoes. It replaces every warm foot bath, lasts a long time and simply tastes really good. It's one of my favorite "warm feet food" and is still delicious the next day.

Autumnal stew for 2 people

1 can of chickpeas
2 carrots
1 sweet potato
1 can of tomatoes
200 Gramm Chorizo
1 lime
1 small onion
250 ml chicken broth
1 dried chili pepper
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp ground coriander
1/4 TL Kurkuma

Dice the onion and sweet potato and slice the carrot and chorizo. Sauté onions until translucent, then add chorizo and lightly brown. Add the sweet potato and carrots and sauté for about 10 minutes, stirring constantly. Add the spices and cook for another 30 seconds until nicely combined. Deglaze with the chicken broth and add the tomatoes and chickpeas. Bring to a boil and simmer over low heat for about 20 minutes with the lid closed. Squeeze the lime and season the stew with it as you like.
