I had the great pleasure of making dinner, not for two yesterday, but for three. My amazing and wonderful teacher-partner, turned, wicked, cool friend - Kim, came round for dinner last night. Of course we got in some good old fashioned rubric making, but, the best part was being able to feed a non-veg*n a meal that she was happy with!
I was in a heartfilled mood, still carried by the love I have for my foodie bloggers, so I decided to make a dish that I could metaphorically give to everyone of you wonderful readers out there. My Chickpea Heart Patties weren't just for Kim, they were for all of you too!!!
These were dead simple, and the whole meal was quick, easy and very satisfying.
Chickpea Heart Patties
(they don't have to be done in the shape of hearts....but......)
1 can of chickpeas (I used the really good ones from Spain)
1/2 cup of whole wheat flour
1 tsp of olive oil
any herbies or spicies that you want to put in your hearts
some elbow greese (take OFF your engagement rings) to mush it all together by hand.
1 super duper cute heart shaped cookie cuter
I mushed all of the ingredients together (after Sylvia did her typical trick of stealing at least five chickpeas) and formed little patties on the cutting board, which I then cut out with the heart shape. I added the little hearts to the cookie sheet and placed the pan to a nicely pre-heated 350 oven. I let each side cook for about 10 minutes. They were amazingly crispy on the outside, and the perfect texture on the inside. Yum Yum!
Kim and I got a lot of work done, helped Kevin finish a bottle of wine, and made plans for our upcoming Canadian Thanksgiving dinner (which we are hosting at my place this coming Sunday!!!)
With last week's tragedy, I didn't get a chance to post my 'new' tasty treat: Seaseme Spread on Rice Cakes with cute little cranberries. Delicious.
Really looking forward to catching up on everyone's wonderful blogs!
