Tastes even better reheated the next day because the flavors have had more time to blend ;-) Serve spooned over a bed of rice or orzo.



Heat the oil in a skillet over medium high heat. Stir in the onion and chicken and cook until the onion is browned and the chicken is golden, about 5 minutes.

Reduce the heat to medium, and stir in the garlic, curry powder, cinnamon, and clove. Cook and stir until the garlic has softened slightly, about 1 to 2 minutes.

Increase heat to high, add the garbanzo beans, tomato paste, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and water, bring to a boil and then reduce heat to medium low.

Cook an additional 10 minutes covered and then uncover, increasing heat to medium high. Cook until the sauce is reduced to the consistency you like.

Add chickpeas to virtually any stew or crockpot meal to extend the number of servings, and add nutrition.



Rinse the chickpeas.

Add the desired amount (I use 2 cups or less depending on the dish I am preparing).

Add to crockpot or sauce pan and simmer with the rest of the ingredients.

Chickpeas provide great nutrition, fiber and taste great with almost any stew or sauce recipe, an affordable way to extend the recipe for additional servings.

A hearty vegetable soup.



Cover chick peas with one quart of water ( 4 cups). Add onion and seasonings and beef bouillon. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to simmer. Simmer about 30 minutes. Add vegetables and simmer for another 30 minutes, or until vegetables are tender. Add tomatoes. Heat and serve hot.

Just tried this recipe for the first time last night and it was yummy :-)



Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a shallow baking dish. Scoop out the flesh of the zucchini; chop the flesh and set aside. Place the shells in the prepared dish.

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Saute onions for 5 minutes add garlic and saute 2 minutes more. Stir in chopped zucchini and saute 5 minutes.

Stir in coriander, cumin, chick peas, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Spoon the mixture in to the zucchini shells.

Bake in a preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes or until the zucchini is tender.
