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 :(

He does however, LOVE eggs. So, when I saw this combination I knew I had a winner. IMG_6945

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

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.

I topped the bread with some I Can’t Believe it’s Not Butter spread. The company sent me a coupon for one of their products and I went with the spread because I already have the spray :) I cant believe it's not butter 

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 :( 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

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

Now I am off to spend some time with that guy who lives with me…

    I’m glad you could find a dinner that you both like.
    I had some chick peas floating around my refrigerator in need to consuming the other night and actually added them to my omelet. It was good!

    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.

    This is the right Chickpeas and Eggs | Run Eat Repeat blog for anyone who wants to move out out roughly this issue. You react so overmuch its virtually effortful to fence with you (not that I real would want…HaHa). You definitely put a new gyrate on a message thats been holographic around for period. Prissy meaninglessness, but high!
