Tips

For more protein, add 1 cup of dried quinoa to recipe about 1 hour before serving.


Directions

1. Soak chickpeas in enough cold water to cover them by 2 inches for 6 hours or overnight. (OR, use the quick-soak method: Place beans in large pot with enough water to cover by 2 inches. Bring to a boil over high heat. Remove from heat and let stand for 1 hour.) Drain when ready to use.
2. Combine the soaked chick peas, squash, carrots, onion, lentils, broth, tomato paste, ginger, cumin, salt, and pepper in a 6-quart slow cooker.
3. Put on lid and cook on low until the chickpeas are tender and the lentils have begun to break down, 5 to 6 1/2 hours.
4. Stir in lime juice. Serve sprinkled with cilantro.
