As mentioned in the previous post, I cooked 301 distinct bean recipes during 2021, and my family rated each of them out of five. There were 113 fives — and here they are 🙂 Sorry this format isn’t better — was the best I could do in a short time. When you click on theContinue reading “These are a few of our favourite beans”
(image credit) It is snowing outside, which made it a great day for this soup. It was fantastic. I made it with chickpeas I’d cooked in the pressure cooker — 4 cups cooked, added a bit of the cooking water to a pot with the onion that I’d fried a bit, a bit more water,Continue reading “Greek Chickpea soup recipe (Revithia)”
(image credit) My 14-year-old daughter made these meringue cookies with our hand mixer, and we can’t stop eating them. She said were really easy to make, and is planning to make them again 🙂
(image credit the author, CC0) Made this spice cake. It was fantastic. There was a package of edible flowers for sale in my grocery store so I bought them for decoration and it was lovely. The cake was a little too flat, partly because I used a 8×11 pan instead of the recommended 8×8. IContinue reading “Orange Spice Garbanzo Cake”
(image credit) Today’s chickpea salad was also delicious, maybe even better than yesterday’s. Cucumber instead of lettuce, lemon instead of balsamic vinegar, otherwise much the same. Will definitely make this again.

I was hungry for those again, so I modified this recipe to include rolled oats, subbed the chocolate chips for raisins (sacrilege I know), added someContinue reading “Chickpea Oatmeal Raisin Cookies”
(image credit) I liked this one more than the rest of my family did, but yeah, I liked it quite a lot. Am a sucker for tomatoes, so I guess it had my number. I also appreciated that I didn’t need to chop the onions very small because they just go in the blender. OneContinue reading “Chickpea Curry (Chhole)”
(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! Nice opening up of our breakfast game. Made it by mixing in a bit of broccoli I’d chopped up and then microwaved to soften and some cheddar cheese IContinue reading “Chickpea Omelette – Vegan Omelette”
(image credit) This sandwich spread is amazing. Not very mayo-y (important for others in my family), a nice vinegar zing, and pickles. Super good, and easy to put together. Calls for fresh dill which I don’t normally have on hand, but maybe would be ok with dried dill too so it could be a pantryContinue reading “Smashed Chickpea Salad Sandwich”
