Chickpeas with Greek Yogurt
I don’t know the history behind chickpeas as an ingredient in food but i have seen a number of different recipes that include them as basic. When i was young, my mother ussually was cooking the classic chickpea soup, but there are some additional ways to enjoy it.
The flavor of chickpeas make them an ideal ingredient for a winter dish while the additional ingredients in this dish give it a taste of summer also.
The funny thing with that food is that you don’t need to do anything much more from what you had to do in the chickpea soup in terms of cooking, but change the way you present it.
- 450gr of chickpeas
- 1-2 teaspoons of greek yogurt for each plate
- 1/2 onion chopped
- 1 vegetable stocking cube
- 1 small bunch of mint chopped
- 2 slices of bread
- Salt, pepper
- Olive oil
Have the chickpeas from the previous day in a big bowl of water and leave there over the night.
At the day start boiling them in a big pot together with olive oil and some chopped onions. Add also the stocking cube, salt and pepper. Before they are ready have the slices of bread warmed up in the grill .
In a plate place the slices of bread broken down in medium size pieces. With a skimmer remove the chickpeas and add them on top. On top add a got spoon of yogurt.
Sprinkle Olive oil and mint and they are ready!
