Onto dinner- thanks to VeggieGirl, I have started to explore a lot of the great vegan blogs out there. For my last recipe for blogger week, I used a vegan recipe from an awesome Blog: Your Vegan Mom. The only change I made to this recipe was to add some additional vegis.
1 onion, diced
1 bunch chard, roughly shredded
1 1/2 c. cooked chickpeas
1 c. chickpea broth (if you don't have any chickpea broth, use pasta water or vegetable broth)
about 1 T. lemon juice
4 cloves garlic
red chili flakes to taste
1 - 2 T. olive oil
about 2/3 bag pasta
Brown onion in olive oil. Add minced garlic and chili flakes and cook for a few seconds, just until fragrant. Add the swiss chard, chickpeas, broth, and salt. Cover and simmer until the swiss chard is wilted. Add lemon juice. Toss with cooked pasta and enjoy.
Simple yet yummy! What are you doing this weekend?
i have really enjoyed this blogger week, erica! such a great idea. i also never thought i would cook vegan food until i discovered all these great blogs - now i love my v'con, eveyday vegan & ED&BV cookbooks :D
i have a nice weekend ahead of me - friends, family, hopefully some productivity too...
Just wanted to let you know that I posted a BSI recipe tonight! Thanks for picking pears...I had a lot of fun with it! Hope you enjoy the recipe.
So glad that work went well!!
Aww yay, glad that I encouraged you to scope out more blogs! :0)
Looove that pasta!!
Happy almost Halloween!! Simple yet yummy looks really really good. I'm going big for Halloween weekend. Having a little gathering tomorrow and then the West Hollywood Carnivale. Birthday party on Saturday. Woo, exhausting, but fun!!
yummy! looks fantastic :)
I've really enjoyed blogger week!
Its my long day at the restaurant tomorrow (boo) but I'm excited for a pasta making class on Saturday at the local culinary school!
yay for blogger week!!!! this last one looks so yummy!!
I like simple and yummy. :)
Bummer about Turbo...I'm sure it's only a matter of time before word spreads of its awesomeness -- especially if you're teaching it!
I'm dressing up as a flapper for Halloween and we're going out. The hubby is going as one of the Beastie Boys from the Sabotage video. lol.
I can't believe Turbo isn't big down there... I LOVE TURBO!!! I think it would be fun to teach someday.
I posted it in the previous post.
I just used post three times in a sentence! But here it is! I know you can make it even better than I did...in which case I'll have to steal the recipe from you. :)
mi and Erica - The lentil burger! I wish I had an exact recipe, but I don’t. I just threw stuff together in my mini-blender and kept poking it to see if it felt right. :) Crazy, right? So I used 1/2 cup of lentils - I know that much for sure - then added egg whites, carrots, onion (green AND white because I’m an onion freak), garlic, a blob of dijon, and some bread crumbs. OH, and lots of pepper and some greek seasoning. Then I pulsed it lots in the blender and made a little patty. It was really fun!
Hey friend, the chickpea pasta looks delicious! Chickpeas are my favorite bean by far but I never think about having them with pasta.
Easy to make pumpkin oatmeal for one, but I highly recommend making the double and saving the other portion for the next day. It's working out great for me during the work week.
We're having two couples over tomorrow night, for some autumn appetizers while we hand out candy. We're dressing up too; our street is craaazzy on Halloween! I'm dressing as a gypsy, at night and for work too.
Have a fun weekend!
love the pasta idea too...and heart the chickpeas.
Looks delicious! I love simple recipes. I am trick or treating today with Mark!
Mmmm...chick peas! I first discovered them in college and now I'm in love.
I am going to try really hard to fix up something for the BSI, but I am watching my niece and nephew this weekend...maybe they can help? ;-)
Happy Halloween! I gotta know what Frank's costume is.
I have enjoyed the week. Loved those pancakes you made a few days ago. I've just had the chance to catch up today.
Not much planned here this weekend. Fortunately I have a lot of free time. Looking forward to it!
mmm i love chickpeas!! that pasta looks fab! and your pancakes from the previous post look sensational!!
Hey, I'm so glad you enjoyed the recipe!
Lovin' the pasta!! I've really enjoyed this Blogger Week and am sad to see it go! You do such a great job and I am so jealous of your culinary skills!
I've got a very relaxing weekend ahead of me - FINALLY! I'm going to do my best to get a BSI recipe in there somewhere :o)
That pasta looks wonderful. My main weekend event is a shopping, dinner, and movie excursion with my sister on saturday! Have a good one!
Great blogger week posts Erica!! I'm sending you my BSI recipe soon. Very excited... I have two - is that allowed??
Also, I hope you don't mind my posting this, but here goes: I just wanted to alert you and all the readers on your blog... I will be holding a contest on my blog to raffle of a sample package of ZAP products to one lucky winner on Saturday, November 1st. The sample package will include 2 jars of ZAP peanut butter and an assortment of their energy bars. Spread the word!!
Hey, maybe if you teach turbo while she's on maternity leave, it will become really popular and you can start a new trend??!! :)
yummy. i love chickpeas. they taste perfect straight out of the can... which is usually how i eat them. i can only imagine how they taste with some pasta.
That looks great!
