Chickpeas and Eggs

When I saw this recipe on Heatherbakes recently I almost died. I LOVE chickpeas (um, call me captain obvious). But – Ben doesn’t like them icon sad Chickpeas and Eggs

The original recipe is in the latest Food Network magazine. This edition is all about eggs. Since I didn’t have the actual magazine or recipe I made it up as I went along (aka – how I always cook).

I used this sauce I got from Bertolli as part of the FoodBuzz Taste Maker program. This is my new favorite sauce. I LOVED it – for real. Ben even asked if it’s sold around here because he wants me to get it again. IMG 6942 thumb Chickpeas and Eggs

This meal was super easy and super delicious – just like I like it! Plus, with the addition of eggs Ben loved it too.

Chickpeas and Eggs – RER style:

Heat olive oil in a cast iron skillet. Sautee onions and garlic in oil.  Add 2-3 cups of cooked (canned) chickpeas. Mix and Heat through.

Add jar of sauce, heat.

When sauce is hot add eggs. I added four because I wanted more chickpeas than eggs.

Serve with warm naan. Enjoy life.

Today was a healthy, but not perfect day of eats. After reviewing many, many blog posts from the past I realized a few blaring things I do wrong:

- Eat too many carbs and not enough protein or healthy fats (so I’m not satisfied)

- Eat too much fruit by itself (and have a resulting sugar/carb binge)

- Snack randomly/mindlessly/habitually/at night (this we already knew, but I didn’t realize the extent until reading myself do it day after day after day…)

In an effort to listen to  get in more protein I made a turkey sandwich for lunch. As soon as I was eating it I felt guilty for eating meat icon sad Chickpeas and Eggs I think I will stick to non-animal sources of protein in my sandwich next time. But I did want to come clean about it.IMG 6938 thumb Chickpeas and Eggs

Today while eating an apple and cantaloupe (that missed the camera) I added cashews and raisins. Adding the nuts helped even with the dried fruit.IMG 6940 thumb Chickpeas and Eggs

    That looks wonderful. I have a silly question, do you cook the eggs first or let them cook in the sauce? I can’t wait to make this recipe.

Prissy meaninglessness, but high!
