Chickpea Fail

I roasted a bunch of chickpeas into oblivion today. But, I did still snack on a bunch of them (even in their charred state) as I was cooking dinner so I wasn’t hungry when dinner actually rolled around.

For din-din I made Spinach & Feta dip with Oikos yogurtIMG_2513

Ingredients: 1 small container plain Oikos, 1 cup frozen spinach, 1/4c mayonnaise, 1/4 c feta & red pepper flakes, salt, pepper to taste.

Directions: Heat spinach in microwave and squeeze out all the excess water in a towel. Mix yogurt, spinach, mayo, feta, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper together. Serve as a dip with chunks of bread. Enjoy!IMG_2518

This recipe is super simple and yummy! It’s my entry for Oikos’ Sweepstakes going around blog town. The winner will receive a trip for two to the amazing Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health! I would completely love to win this! After all the worry about getting a new job I can only dream of relaxation right now. If you’re a fan of Oikos check out their fan page on Facebook.

Giveaway!!! If  you’re in need of some spa indulgence leave a comment on this post to win a spa pack from Stonyfield. I’ll choose a winner tomorrow at lunch.

I also topped Ben’s chicken with the dip. He thought it was a little too strong to eat like this and ended up putting it on a slice of bread.IMG_2521

My dinner was many samples of spinach & feta dip with bread and eggs with half a sweet potato. I was not hungry, but didn’t want to skip dinner (and set myself up for a kitchen raid at 10pm) so I tried to keep it on the light side (for me). IMG_2525

I am still planning on eating the remainder of my burnt chickpeas tomorrow though… #chickpeafail I hope this doesn’t get me kicked out of the Chickpea Lover’s Club. Rose, am I still in? IMG_2526I kinda have a headache right now…weird. I will see you all tomorrow for Vegan Thursday. Join the club, all the cool kids are doing it :)

    That seems like a great recipe! Maybe I’ll bring it to my gathering on Saturday!

    I definitely need a spa indulgence. It’s been a rough day…

    Maybe one of these days I’ll be brave enough to try chickpeas. The texture of beans in my mouth is kinda off-putting to me, and I imagine chickpeas to be the same. But maybe I’m wrong :) Thanks for the giveaway!

    Spa… sounds so nice! I just finished my senior year college cross country, and I in my two weeks off of running before I start training for track. A spa treatment would be so wonderful!

    Poor lil chickpeas! Don’t feel bad, if I had a dime for every time I’ve totally forgotten what was in the oven and burnt it to a crisp, I’d be a rich, rich woman…one that could afford spa visits all the time, but since I’m not, I hope I win the spa pack!

    I studied for my music history final today for 9 hours and I am only about a third of the way ready for it. Gah. Spa treatments would be nice. I need to make that spinach dip too, that looks amazing!

    I swear, Greek yogurt is one of the best additions to any recipe. My fave is adding a few tsp. of olive oil to some yogurt and some seasoning – usually a ranch or herb seasoning packet, and using it as veggie dip! No one can tell it’s not sour cream in the mix!

    I would looove to win a spa giveaway, sounds heavenly!

    I keep seeing roasted chickpees and always wonder how good they actually are. I will need to use them in a recipe tonight.

    I wish I could win a spa trip! Exactly what this stressed out girl needs.

    Mmm, that dip looks delish! I could really use some pampering and destressing right now!

    I tried doing the 30 day shred a few months ago. It’s a good workout but I found it hard to do every day bc of time and wanting to do other workouts. Good luck with it! I haven’t done level 3 yet… I’m kinda scared and level 2 kicks my butt pretty good!
