Magical Mushroom Mélange

image

This hearty, healthy and simple dish is easy to make, and a real delicious treat. I find it to be grounding, warm and soothing especially for the colder times of year. It’s something I threw together today before work and look forward to duplicating as well as expanding on with different herbs and spices. Give it a try, and be sure to let me know what you think.

Ingredients:

Mushrooms (baby Bella)
Chickpeas (fresh/frozen)
Spinach (fresh)
Onion, sliced thinly
Garlic (fresh or powder)
Coconut oil
Salt and Pepper to taste
Hemp Seeds

Directions:

1. Thaw and gently cook chickpeas over medium heat with a teaspoon or so of water, until soft when pierced with a fork.

2. Sautée onions with coconut oil, then add mushrooms and garlic. I also added a bit of ‘Earth Balance Roasted Garlic and Herbs’ vegan butter for easy source of extra flavor. (Opt.) Always fresh herbs are of course the best, but this is great for when you find yourself cooking with a time limit.

3. Cover chickpeas with several handfuls of rinsed spinach and let steam for a minute or two.

4. Combine everything, season with salt and pepper to taste and top with hemp seeds.

Bon appétit!
