It’s no secret that one pot meals are the best thing to have. It’s easy to cook and convenient to serve. There’s even a little clean up to do. The next best thing is making sure this one pot meal is also nourishing and delicious in no particular order.

If that’s what you are looking for, I believe you just found yourself some dinner! This Instant Pot Sausage Chickpea Stew has all the delicious flavors, texture and sausage! Who doesn’t love sausages right!

When I first made my original Instant Pot Chickpea Stew which is a vegetarian recipe, I became completely obsessed with it for all the right reasons, but at times I felt like it was missing something like a good sausage and a bigger explosion of flavors. Like the kind that will make your eyes grow wide and your mouth mumble yummmm!

However, because the original Instant pot Chickpea Stew was so good I barely wanted to mess up with something that was perfect to begin with. While there are many similarities between these two recipes, there are also enough differences that I decided to keep them separate.

My vegetarian friends will be grateful for that! And you can decide which of these will your family enjoy best.

  2. We’ve been making this almost once a week since finding this recipe and absolutely love how delicious, filling, and easy it is!

  3. My husband and I absolutely love this meal. We were not expecting it to be spectacular because it was so easy to make. We make it once a week. We are vegan so I make it with beyond meat sausage and vegetable broth.

    1. That’s awesome Maureen! I totally know what you mean, even when writing the recipe I thought, Geez this is so easy I hope people realize that there is still good flavor in it! P.S. I love beyond meat 🙂
