Marinated Chickpeas


 

As I sit here and type this post I am sitting in a hotel room still swooning over this amazing and totally swanky restaurant this hotel has. Like Lisa Vanderpump swanky. And the food OMGOSH. The best Asian cuisine I have ever tasted. Ever! Now onto things that taste good.
This dish so easy and tastes so delish. It's kind of embarrassing that it's so easy to make. It's actually a perfect kids in the kitchen recipe and totally healthy to boot. 




I just love chickpeas. Like in every which way and form. When you think about it they are a pretty versatile little bean. I love them in a falafel, marinated like this, roasted, turned into hummus and so on. 


 This is a totally simple yet elegant dish. A perfect compliment for any dinner, lunch or all alone as a salad. Take it with you to any cook out or dinner party and it will surly disappear.

  1. Yum! I bet this is good. I love chickpeas and I had no idea until around Christmas. I'm liking the idea of them with kidney beans & green beans! Yummy!

  2. Oh my that recipe for the chickpeas sounds so good! I'm definitely going to try it. I always look for them to add to a salad at restaurants but not everyone has them. I was introduced to them as garbanzo beans and I never knew what they really were until I googled them! LOL...
