Chickpea & mushroom slow cooker feast

45 - 60 mins

Throw these ingredients together in the morning and a warming delicious stew will be waiting for you when you get home. If you're short on time, you can skip step number one and just put all the ingredients in together. Try experimenting by putting in kidney beans or fresh tomatoes in too.

2 cans of chickpeas, drained
5 Carrots, chopped
2 Celery sticks, chopped
2 white onions, diced
Pack of button mushrooms, sliced
Other vegetables or beans that need using up from the cupboard or fridge

3 sliced spring onions to sprinkle on top
1 vegetable stock cube
3 cloves of garlic, minced

Add all your ingredients, including chopped vegetables and fried onions, into the slow cooker and pour the stock and can of chopped tomatoes in.
