A New Dish

Supper in a hurry:)

I'm trying to use up my current supplies before grocery shopping, so dishes are created around what I have on hand, not the other way around.

Tonight's Chickpea dish :

2 TBS Sunflower oil
2 small onions, halved and sliced thin
2 cloves garlic, minced
small amount of veg. broth (or water)
1 heaped tsp paprika
1 hot pepper chopped
1 can chickpeas, rinsed
1 large sweet potato, peeled, diced
1 potato, peeled, diced
Salt and Pepper

Heat oil, add onions, add a little salt, cook until  they soften.
Add garlic, stir.
When onions are golden, add a little broth as needed. Add sweet potato, potato, paprika, stir well, lower heat and cover dish. Cook until nearly done, then add chickpeas. Stir - heat until chickpeas are hot.
Season w. Salt and Pepper and enjoy.


  1. This looks good! I even have all those ingredients, so I should try it! I think I will try it on Mon.... my DS is home for the weekend, with a friend, and I doubt he would appreciate my experimenting on him.

    I did my own throw-together supper last week, and it was so good I did it again the next night. First I cooked some salmon; then in the same pan, I sauteed what veggies I had (celery, garlic, sweet peppers, broccoli). Then I scrambled an egg and threw that in, along with the salmon, broken up, and a bit of cheese. It was majorly good! :)


  2. Hi Jehanne,

    It's so nice to see that I'm not just muttering to myself...
    Glad you like the idea.
    Usually, those things from the veggie drawer and the pantry make the most enjoyable dishes. No big planning, shopping required:) -
    Added benefit: you use up the leftovers:)
    (BTW - my DS liked the above dish)

  3. Hey again-- Sorry for talking about fish and eggs on here. I wasn't thinking about your being a vegan. So I came back to apologize... and I get the benefit of it, because I'm reminded of your great recipe! That looks so good, I may try it tonight!


  4. No apology needed:)
    I'm not even a vegan... Normally, I am a lacto-ovo vegetarian. For the duration of the Detox I'm excluding all dairy, eggs - and a few other items, only to re-introduce them gradually, which will (hopefully) help me figure out what works for me and what I need to use more sparingly.

    Let me know how you like it.:)
