This is a very tasty and hearty vegetarian stew which combines flavors such as chickpeas, apples and kale. If we are not making this dish vegetarian, we often add sausage, however this stew is very good without it as well.
The combination of chickpeas, kale and the surprising addition of apples makes for a wonderful dish which is perfect to serve during any time of the year really.
Saute cut up onions and carrots in olive oil for about 10 minutes. Clean, core and slice the apples and add those at this point. Add the herbs and the vermouth, let simmer for a few minutes. Then add the broth, let come to a simmer and add the rinsed chickpeas.
Taste and add some salt and pepper. Clean, stem and chop the kale and add that to the stew. Let cook for about 5 minutes.
