Dinner With The Dews

It's been a while since we've done a Dinner With The Dews and today I just had to share my most recent eMeals favorite.  I posted a picture of it on IG Saturday evening and had a few people request the recipe.  I aim to please.  It's a crock pot meal, is under 300 calories per serving {289 to be exact}, it's easy and is probably the tastiest soup I have ever made.  So full of flavor and very filling.  

Italian Sausage & Chickpea Stew

1 tablespoon canola oil
19.5 oz package lean sweet Italian turkey sausage, casings removed
5 cups fat-free, reduced-sodium chicken broth
2 (15-oz) cans chickpeas, drained and rinsed
12 oz package peeled and cubed butternut squash
1 large onion, chopped
1 cup peeled and chopped carrot
1½ teaspoons dried rosemary
½ teaspoon salt, ½ teaspoon pepper

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add sausage; cook 5 minutes or until browned, stirring to crumble. Combine sausage,broth, chickpeas, squash, onion, carrots, rosemary, salt and pepper in a 5- to 6-quart slow cooker. Cover and cook on Low 5 hours.  Serves 6. Note: Refrigerate leftover soup up to 5 days, or freeze in a zip-top plastic bag up to 3 months.

I may or may not have eaten this {minus Jimmy's servings} in less than 24 hours.  It was THAT good.


  1. Ummm, YUM!!!! Looks easy too. And since we're in the middle of an arctic freeze, soup sounds perfect :)

  2. um yum! I will be making this as soon as we move!

  3. This was on our Emeals list last week too and had a crock-pot debacle and missed out. Sounds like we have to revisit this ASAP!

  4. Omg, I made this too, didn't look as good as yours, but it sure did taste good. I didn't put onions in mine, and I only used 1 can of chickpeas because of bad planning...I only had one. LOL!!! But it was YUMMY!!!
