chick pea stew


Recipe Description
vegetarian main dish​
Preparation Steps:
no steps​
Level of Difficulty:
Easy​
Time Needed:
Ingredients:
2 cans of chick peas with the juice
2 large cans of crushed tomatoes with the juice
oregano
olive oil
fresh garlic
parmesan on top​
Serves:
4 people​
Directions:
empty the cans into a shallow pan and bring to a boil. you want the sauce to reduce. add a lot of dried oregano and let it cook on a medium high heat for about twenty minutes. you want the bean juices and tomatoes to reduce and become thicker.

in another pan press some garlic cloves and olive oil, fry garlic in olive oil until it has the brown/ almost burned look. add it to the pot of beans.

mix well, let it cook for about 5 minutes to blend the flavors.

serve with parmensan cheese on top. it's saucy enough you could use it as a pasta topping.​

All the things I love in this dish - chick peas, tomatoes & parm! YUM!

Thanks! Just wondering with the 2nd pan thing - are you trying to make garlic infused oil? OR can you just toss the garlic & oil into the chick pea mixture only dirtying one pot?

hey no criticism intended, I didn't say you did.
I was just pointing out that it could very easily be adjusted for anyone interested. I'm sorry if you felt I was out of line.
it's cool...!
