…Not. I reckon the offspring of chickens and peas wouldn’t taste or look very good.
One way to eat chickpeas:
(Serves 5-6 as a side)
1 medium white onion, diced
2 cans chickpeas, reserving about 1/4-1/2 cup can juice
~1 T tomato paste
~1 t mixed spices (cumin, ginger, clove)
a pinch of cinnamon
salt to taste
Sweat onions in some olive oil.
Mix in chickpeas with juice, tomato paste, spices, and salt.
Let liquid reduce until thickened (about 10-15 mins), adjust seasonings, and serve.
No pictures, unfortunately. 😦 I enjoyed this dish though — it was aromatic and light, and can easily be made more hearty and served over rice for a hassle-free vegetarian meal.
