Chickpea Omelette – Vegan Omelette

(image credit) My teenaged daughter doesn’t like eggs so she has never eaten an omelette. Served her one of these only-chickpea-no-eggs-anywhere-I-promise versions and she liked it!

February: Chickpeas!

(image credit) My daughter and I aren’t the biggest fans of chickpeas, at least not relative to other beans. Because of this, when lightly contemplating the idea of Focusing On A Single Bean For A Whole Month, it felt smart to assign chickpeas to the shortest month, February. I’d forgotten how versatile chickpeas are though.Continue reading “February: Chickpeas!”
