Sometimes people tell me that my recipes take too long and have too many ingredients. My cousin Debbie recommended my blog to a friend of hers. The friend took one look at my blog and complained that she only wanted to prepare recipes that have, at most, three ingredients, and no chopping. Hmmmm. I understand not wanting to spend a lot of time cooking. I've had many moments like that, so I appreciate streamlined recipes, which I do offer. Maybe I need a recipe category titled Fast And Simple. Here is one of them. It should take you around ten minutes, from start to finish, to serve a hot delicious meal. And, no chopping!
The recipe comes from Nigella Express, which features good easy and fast recipes. So there are cookbooks out there for for anyone who wants to prepare their own meals quickly. The chickpeas took me less than three minutes to prepare. I served them with pan grilled salmon, cooked in 8 minutes. It was a satisfying, healthy meal. You can serve the chickpeas as a vegetarian meal, or serve it with any type of fish or shellfish. Nigella serves it with scallops and chorizo.
