As the evenings grow chillier, warm and nourishing dishes like this satisfying chickpea stew are welcome at dinner. A dollop of pesto gives a burst of flavor and one last nod to summer. (Look for pesto in the refrigerated section of your market, or make your own.)

    Loved this soup! I substituted 1 tsp dried oregano for the fresh sprigs. I also omitted the bread. We topped off the soup with pesto and Parmesan. I served toasted, crusty bread on the side. It was delicious!

    This is a delicious stew and even better the next day. I followed another reviewer's advice and added a Parmesan cheese rind and used rosemary because I have lots of it.

    Quick. Easy. Delicious. I'm making it again this weekend for another get-together, since it was loved by everyone at two prior gatherings (even a bean-hater!). A definite keeper, and clearly a new go-to recipe for me this fall-winter. Delicious as followed, but I'll probably also try rosemary instead of oregano, and I have to remember to throw in my Parm cheese rinds! Enjoy!
