Whether you call them garbanzo beans or chickpeas, these tasty little legumes are among the best ingredients to keep on hand for fast weeknight meals or those times when you just don’t feel like cooking. Not that I really need to tell you that.
And since curries made from canned tomatoes and canned garbanzo beans get old pretty fast (at least to me they do), I thought I’d share two of my favorite pilfered and adapted recipes. Both are great for leftovers. Continue reading “Garbanzo Beans”→
I just love almost every recipe I’ve tried from this website. Yesterday, on the email list, she sent a recipe for coconut red lentil soup. I made it for dinner last night and it was EXCELLENT! So, I thought I’d share it with you…
