Best way to eat chickpeas (okay I lie, there are many awesome ways to eat chickpeas – here is a bunch of them).  Easy weeknight meal and you probably have the stuff you need in your pantry already.  Stolen from “The Garden of Vegan” by Tanya Barnard & Sarah Kramer

  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons dark sesame oil
  • 1/4 cup of black olives, chopped
  • 1 can of chickpeas
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala curry powder (because it just smells so good, but any type will do)

On medium heat, cook onion and garlic in oil until fragrant and translucent.  About 5 mins. Add olives, chickpeas, spices and salt and saute for another 5 minutes.  Until chickpeas are heated through.

Serve with rice.
