Simple Ingredients

Directions:

  1. Thaw chickpeas with just a little bit of water over low to medium heat, covered, stirring occasionally.
  2. Warm a generous amount of coconut oil, and add mustard seeds and fresh grated turmeric root.
  3. When mustard seeds begin to pop slightly, begin to saute onions with seasonings: Turmeric powder, Curry powder (either pre-made or your own creative blend), adding fresh garlic only towards the end so as to not over cook and loose the flavor.
  4. Combine chickpeas, seasoned onions and enjoy on their own or as a side!

(I like to generously season the onions, using basically the amount of seasoning I will like to have present in the entire dish. Seasoning the dish in this way can help prevent over stirring veggies at the end and getting a mushy consistency as a result.)

Β This tasty dish pair’sΒ well with tomatoes and greens.
