Dijon Chickpeas

Sometimes (actually, most times) the simple things are best. This dijon chickpea dish is S I M P L E, and when when I say “all caps, with spaces in between” simple, I mean that you can make this under 10 minutes. Like, maybe this will take 15 minutes if you decide to measure your ingredients. But don’t let this short amount of time make you think these chickpeas only have a little bit of flavor. They have a ton of flavor. This dish is creamy, nutty, tangy, salty and bright. It’s also healthy sooooo you basically can’t lose if you make it. All you need are the ingredients, a stove or hot plate, and a pan (preferably a skillet.)

a bowl of dijon chickpeas with red onions and parsley

So what are these ~*dijon chickpeas*~? For this recipe, I take traditional canned chickpeas and sauté them with some red onions and spinach. Of course, the red onion can be subbed for garlic, white onion, sweet onion or shallots — whatever you have in your kitchen. Spinach can also be left out or subbed, but I do like the mild leafy flavor and silky texture with this dish.

The chickpeas are seasoned and coated in olive oil and dijon mustard, with a sprinkle of salt to bring out the natural nutty flavor. I make this as a snack, as a light dinner, or as a side dish. I also want to note, these go very well on a beautifully charred corn tortilla. If you need an easy party dish for your vegan ppl (or just for anyone who has taste buds and great taste, ya no?) then this is a fantastic option. Make the chickpeas and then char a bunch of tortillas and that’s it. You. Are. Welcome! Video tutorial is below, which I find to be more helpful than a written recipe, but you now have both!!! You’re welcome again!!!

  • cbd tincture

    I’m the business owner of JustCBD Store brand (justcbdstore.com) and am planning to broaden my wholesale side of company. I am hoping someone at targetdomain can help me 🙂 I considered that the best way to accomplish this would be to connect to vape shops and cbd retail stores. I was really hoping if anybody at all could suggest a trustworthy web site where I can purchase CBD Shops B2B Marketing List I am presently looking at creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Not sure which one would be the most ideal choice and would appreciate any guidance on this. Or would it be easier for me to scrape my own leads? Suggestions?

    I’m impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s both equally educative and interesting, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is something that not enough folks are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy I came across this during my hunt for something relating to this.
