Friday Food : Delicious Chickpea and Dill thingy by Charlotte George
This is possibly the easiest recipe I know. And it’s also really cheap. And tasty. So win-win-win!
Prep/cooking time = 20 mins
Difficulty = 1
1 tin tomatoes
1 tin chickpeas (rinsed)
1 small onion, 1 clove garlic, olive oil
Big handful of dill
6-10 cherry tomatoes (or 1-2 tomatoes), chopped
Cous cous (plus butter and lemon)
Dash some olive oil in a pan, fry the chopped onion and then add the garlic. When soft, add the fresh tomatoes. Cook for a minute or two, then add the tinned tomatoes and tinned chickpeas (make sure you rinse the chickpeas!)
Chop a big handful of dill (ooh smells so good!) and thow it in. That’s pretty much it. It’s ready.
Serve with cous cous and crumbled feta on top. I make cous cous the cheater’s way: I put the cous cous in a bowl and pour boiling water from the kettle until the cous cous is covered and there’s some extra water sitting on top. In about 1 minute the grain will have soaked up all the water, then use a fork to separate and add a small knob of butter and some lemon juice.
You could also serve it with rice, or even pasta. Serves 2-3.
