We needed a quick meal with limited supplies in the pantry. I never thought it would end up on the blog but it tasted so good and I had friends ask for the recipe. We all need a last minute hearty meal at times so here is an idea. Try it for yourself.
2 400g cans chickpeas, drained
1 400g can diced tomatoes
1/2 can coconut cream
1 large onion/ four shallots. finely diced/sliced
2 large cloves garlic, crushed
2 generous tsp sweet paprika
1 tsp mixed herbs
1 tsp Celtic salt
fresh coriander (optional)
This dish is served on quinoa, rice or couscous so the first thing I did was put the rice/quinoa on to boil or couscous on to soak in boiling water.
Saute the onion in a little oil till soft
Add garlic and seasonings and saute for a further 30 seconds
Add chickpeas, tomatoes and coconut cream
Bring to the boil and then turn down to simmer while you wait for the rice/quinoa/couscous
Make a toss salad while you wait.
Once everything is ready stir through a little fresh coriander if desired and serve.
Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.
