Chickpeas: What’s Not to ♥ ♥ ♥ !!!

I am a big fan of chickpeas!

What about you?

I have a lot of cooking and baking planned for the next couple of weeks, with chickpeas to use in a couple of the recipes.

Below is a Veggies…post from a few years ago, featuring a couple of my favorite chickpea recipes.

Hope you enjoy them soon and DO let me know if you give them a try.

HAPPY WEEK TO ALL! 🙂

VEGGIES, YARNS & TAILS

I’m a big fan of chickpeas.

I use them in all kinds of recipes: soups, stews, curries, hummus…

their nutty rich flavor and the unique texture they add to dishes too.

And they are sooooooo good for us! 😉

There are many health benefits derived from eating chickpeas, you can read more about that here and here. 

On the menu for supper tonight:

Slow Cooker Veggie Curry

And to add to this week’s snacks with crudites, crackers…

Fresh Rosemary Hummus

I ♥♥♥ all kinds of hummus!

I thought this was a great list that I noted on my WP Reader this morning.

I’m definitely going to try the beet hummus, sounds so good. 

And you already know how much I ♥ beets, if you’re a regular reader here. 😉

Happy Cooking and Weekend, G

A post to share a  favorite holiday/anytime munchie recipe: Spicy Honey Almonds.

Other recipes in this photo include: Dilly Dip, Spicy Cream Cheese Roll-ups, Homemade Roasted Pumpkin Seeds, Hummus with a Twist. All from Not Just for Vegetarians.

Happy Holidays and Enjoy all the Wonderful Food! 🙂
