Rounding out the recipe suggestions, Cat recommends this chicken & chorizo dish. Barbara enjoys this African Chicken Peanut Stew from Simply Recipes. She notes that she almost always adds kale or collards to the stew, but that it would also be easy to add chickpeas, okra, or green beans. And, as an added bonus, it … Continue reading

Chickpea & Tuna Salad

Chickpea & Tuna Salad

The other week, we went to Gocciolina, a wonderful Italian restaurant in Durham. While there, I ate the best chickpeas I’ve ever had in my life.

Coconut Rice

This. Is. Delicious. We’ve been eating a ton of rice lately, mainly because it’s super easy to make in one batch and then use as a base for more flavorful toppings. Plus, I just love rice.
