Slow Cooker Sweet and Sour Chickpeas with Pineapple makes an amazing meatless version of your favorite Chinese takeout packed with good for you ingredients.

It took me a long time to come around to sweet and sour dishes. For a long time I normally found them too sweet and just couldn't have more than a few bites. Then a friend made a sweet and sour chicken dish for a dinner party one night and it was amazing. Just the right balance of sweet and sour without being cloyingly sugary. Her secret was using pineapple to sweeten the sauce instead of sugar. Not only a healthier version, a much more delicious one. This recipe takes inspiration from her dish with a vegetarian twist using chickpeas. It's hearty, full of flavor, and makes a perfect meal with a plate of brown rice or quinoa.
