xThe dish we want to teach you today is a traditional Cod with Chickpeas and Tomato. It is a healthy, delicious and very easy to make recipe.

We consider it a fish recipe because as you can see in the ingredients, it has more cod than chickpeas. It is another way to make the classic Lenten stew, rich in protein and without meat ingredients that were banned during Lent in other times.

In addition, cod is one of the lightest white fish, contains very little fat and is low in calories, making it an ideal food for maintaining a healthy diet and balanced weight. Nutritionally, it stands out as an excellent source of three very important nutrients that are not easily found in other natural foods. These are vitamin D, selenium, and omega 3. Selenium is essential for cell integrity. This mineral is not abundant in many foods. On the other hand, just 200 grams of cod covers 60 to 70 percent of the daily recommended amount of selenium.

For this recipe, we have used desalted and flaked cod loins. 

Also chickpeas are one of the most nutritious legumes and provide essential nutrients for the whole family, such as fiber, iron, protein, and vitamins. To make this recipe, we have opted to choose precooked chickpeas to go faster. You can also buy them natural, soak them in water overnight and cook them in a pressure cooker (or slow cook, although it will take longer), before starting with the recipe that we will show you next.

We hope that you like our recipe for Cod with Chickpeas and Tomato as much as we do!
