I used to soooo not like Chickpeas. Now I truly LOVE them. What brought on the change? Well, in the past I thought of them as boring, tasteless blobs because on their own, they sort of are. However I realised when we add spices and sauces they become little balls of deliciousness. High fibre, high protein, they are now one of the staples in my kitchen cupboard. Give me chickpeas and I give you a yummy meal, be it curry, or this recipe, a hummus or falafel...The options are endless. Hurrah to chickpeas, the little balls of deliciousness.
1 Melt coconut oil on low - medium hot in your favourite casserole dish.
2 Add diced onion and chopped garlic
3 Sauteé until see through. You may need to add a splash of water so they don't burn
4 Add the thinly cut carrots and keep stirring for another couple of minutes
5 Now add the tin of drained, rinsed chickpeas
6 Follow with the tinned diced tomato
7 Add water, your spices and seasoning.
8 Simmer on very low for about 20 minutes to allow flavours to mingle.
9 I eat this with some quinoa. Yum.
I use organic ingredients whenever I can.
