Both Dh and I liked this I made it as written and served with couscous and the flavors were wonderful, however I felt like it was missing something to send it over the top ...this will definitely go into the rotation for our meatless thursdays

Entire family loved this dish and it made enough to freeze for a second meal. A bit more time-intensive than your typical crockpot recipe, but worth it. My husband and I added Sriracha to our bowls to spice up a little more. Toddlers loved the chickpeas.

This had really good flavors; slightly sweet. I soaked the chickpeas overnight and used chopped kale in place of the green peas. Served with brown rice. A really good vegetarian dish that my kids liked too.

This is fabulous!! We were astounded by all the flavor that it had. I omitted the olives since we don't like them and didn't even need the couscous as it is very hearty on its own. Defniitely make this one!!

This was delicious! Followed instructions as written. My husband doesnt like olives, so i threw the sliced manzanillas into the food processor - he had no idea they were in there and couldnt tell. Looking forward to leftovers.

I thought this was terrific. The slow-cooking gives it a nice rich and deep flavor and it made plenty. I've been disappointed by a number of CL's recent vegetarian stew/chili recipes, but not this one. Definitely a keeper.

Oh, my. This is divine with whole wheat couscous! I used chipotle chili powder instead of red pepper--tasted lovely. This dish has big, rich flavors and it's very easy to make. This recipe just made regular rotation!

We didn't like this recipe too much. I think it was the cinnamon for us. I expected it to taste a little more like chili.

I love this recipe (minus the raisins). It is a great vegetarian dinner option, just use vegetable broth.

This was really delicious! The house smelled great all day. It was a little more involved for a slow cooker recipe, since it had multiple steps. You can't just throw a bunch of stuff in and come back in 8 hours. But the extra effort was worth it. It was more of a method than a time-saving recipe that I usually associate with slow cookers. I followed directions to the letter. Great vegetarian chili.

OMG! So flavorful! But makes me think more of a tagine than of a chili.

Loved this recipe! The raisins add just the right amount of sweetness to the spice. I also added in spinach just before serving and it tasted great! Recommend this dish for the cold winter months when you need to warm up!
