Pasta, Chickpea, Leek & Beef Pot


This is another one of my favorite comfort foods. 

You can include any veggies you want, but the important ones are the chickpeas and leek mixed in with the ground beef! 


  • 1 Tbsp oil
  • 1 onion - diced
  • 1 chili pepper - sliced
  • 400g ground beef
  • 2 Tbsp tomato paste
  • salt, pepper, cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp Italien herb mix
  • 1 carrot - sliced
  • 1 zucchini - sliced or in stripes
  • 1 leek - big chunks/ slices
  • 2 cups chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 cu water
  • 1 1/2 cups pasta (Fusilli, uncooked)
  • 1 can chickpeas
  • 1/2 cup corn



Heat up the oil in a big pot. Add the onions and chili peppers, fry them till the onions are translucent. Then add the ground beef. Break it down and let it brown. Add some tomato paste, Italian herbs, salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper. Stir well. 

Add the sliced carrots and cook for about 5 minutes before you add the softer vegetables. 

Now, add zucchini, the big leek chunks and the vegetable broth and water. Bring to a simmer. Mix in the uncooked pasta and let cook for about 5 minutes. Add the corn and chickpeas and cook for another 3-5 minutes (depending on how long the normal cooking time for the pasta is). 

Serve, maybe spinkle with fresh parsley.
