I love this recipe – quick, easy, tasty, and cheap – what could be better? I adapted it from Vegetarian Times, October 2008.
30min, or less
2Tbs. olive oil
1 small onion, thinly sliced
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 14.5 oz cans chickpeas, rinsed and drained
3 med. carrots, sliced into thin rounds
1 tsp ground turmeric
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
2 tsp agave nectar
3 Tbs. finely chopped parsley
Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and garlic, and saute 2-3 minutes, or until onion slices are soft. Stir in chickpeas, carrots, spices, agave nectar, and 2 cups of water. cover and simmer 20 to 25 minutes, stirring occasionally. Season with salt and pepper.
serve with parsley as a garnish. I like to serve this over rice just to make it last a bit longer.
