I’m gonna have chickpeas on toast today. Will you join me?
A simple, minimalistic approach to cooking with five ingredients and a lot of flavour!
CHICKPEAS ON TOAST
Time: 10 minutes prep 15 minutes cooking
1 medium-sized baguette, preferably whole grain
2 cups chickpeas, precooked (or canned)
1 large onion
1 cup tomato puree
¼ cup green olives, sliced
1 tablespoon olive oil
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper
Roughly chop the onion while you are heating the oil in a pan. Sauté seasoning with salt and pepper for 3-4 minutes before adding the chickpeas to the pan. Toss to coat with all the flavours from the pan and pour in the tomato sauce. Give it a quick taste to see if you need more salt and pepper.
If I haven’t just preached about the 5 ingredient rule on this post I would have probably used thyme here as well. Dammit.
Let the sauce simmer and thicken while you toast the bread.
Serve dollops of the chickpea mix on the bread, top with olives and serve warm.
I ended up garnishing mine with a few chopped up basil leaves that I had laying in the fridge. It tasted good and otherwise, they would go to waste. After all, food minimalism, as all forms of minimalism is not about blindly following certain rules. It’s about intentionally working with what you have and adjusting to each given situation.
