Egyptian Summer Braised Chickpeas

Braising our vegetables and legumes for a powerhouse of flavour that will keep delicious all week long.

Chickpeas are quickly becoming a staple in our house for a few different reasons;

- Their versatility is out of this world!
- High fiber 💩 and great protein source
- They are deliciously inexpensive to keep stocked in your pantry

Aside from grabbing a spoonful every time I passed through the kitchen, we also found a few different ways to enjoy throughout the week;

- Serve warm over arugula
- Scoop up with some good quality crusty bread!
- Makes a great side dish to compliment your shining star

Swap out any of these ingredients for something similar you already have on hand. We didn't want to let that last, lonely leek go to waste, and it made for the perfect addition here! But white onion, red onion or shallot will do that trick. Don't have lemon? Use a vinegar you have on hand instead to get some acidity into your dish. Don't like feta? Goat cheese or cubed mozzarella would also be amazing.

If you have another Big Cove blend in your pantry, or not a fan of heat, easily sub out a different flavour. Our Mary Had a Lot of Lamb, Taco Enhancer or Red Rub would welcome these flavours with a huge hug of flavour.

And don't forget salt to taste! Our blends are low salt to keep you still in charge, this is your mealtime.
