I hate winter. I have really poor circulation, so when I get cold it takes forever to warm up. My toes are still freezing….after 2 hours of sitting under a blanket while grading papers and drinking hot tea. So I’ve been combating the weather with lots of warm foods.
Thanks to Jenn for hosting another What I ate Wednesday!
I’m bringing you Sunday’s meals, because decorating the Christmas tree is involved. Coming home to a lit tree is the only thing that makes winter enjoyable…too bad Christmas is only 4 days in to winter and I have to suffer through another 3 months of bleakness.
Christmas tree decorating fuel
a while back and was excited to try it. However, after defrosting my chicken I discovered it had gone bad! Chickpeas to the rescue! As well as a host of other changes, of course. I just can’t help myself.
Coconut Lime Chickpeas
Adapted from this recipe
1 can chickpeas (garbanzo beans), rinsed and drained
2 tsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp curry powder
1 tsp turmeric
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp oregano
1 14 oz can light coconut milk
1 4 oz. can diced green chiles
2 TBS lime juice
1/2 cup sweet (or yellow) onion, chopped
3 tsp frozen cilantro cubes (can sub 3 TBS fresh cilantro)
Heat oil over medium in a large skillet. Add garlic and chickpeas. Stir to prevent burning of the garlic, and cook 5 minutes. Add curry, turmeric, cumin and oregano, stirring to combine. Cook 1 minute. Add coconut milk, green chiles, lime juice, onion and cilantro. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Serve over brown rice.
This was so delicious. I was a very happy camper to be eating leftovers for Monday’s lunch. Link up your pinteresting recreations over at All Things Lovely!
