Chickpea Stew

My local farmer’s market used to sell this amazing chickpea stew dish over rice, but the booth that sold it is no longer there. I was craving it the other day, so I looked up Moroccan chickpea soup recipes to get some ideas. Then I basically just threw a bunch of things I like into a pot and cooked it up. This recipe is super easy, hearty, and cheap!
