Chickpea Stew Recipe

Chickpeas and black cabbage are widely used ingredients in Tuscan cuisine and for this recipe I was inspired by some dishes I tasted to create a nice hearty dish.

The flavors have blended perfectly, but they can be distinguished perfectly. You can feel the spices and the note of chilli that accentuates all the flavors especially that of the cabbage and its spiciness is really mild. The chickpeas remained firm and really tasty as they absorbed the broth during cooking. Black cabbage with florets add a creamy touch to every bite.

The sausage is very soft, it melts in the mouth and is not greasy at all. Not everyone likes the skin but cooking it in this way has practically merged with the meat and does not feel at all. The bones of the ribs come off perfectly, their fat is practically melted and the meat, that is to say, melts in the mouth nice juicy and tasty.

Excellent on its own or with a couple of slices of beautiful Tuscan bread toasted with a good oil and a full-bodied glass of wine. Chickpea Stew Recipe with Pork and Black Cabbage is a genuine and substantial dish, perfect for warming up in winter!

If you liked this recipe you will find the Japanese Beef Curry irresistible.
