Playing with new flavors last night. Browsing in my cupboard, the idea of tonight dinner vegetable side dish was born.
I always have chickpeas in my pantry, love them in my salad for lunch, and preparing them along side Brussels sprouts and cauliflower was something I never thought of doing and why not??
Searching thru my cookbooks, I found the idea of sautéing the chickpeas. Different, I thought, and curious as to the flavor they will give out.
In the kitchen I went, skillet out and ready to have fun.
Be very careful while sautéing the chickpeas as to not leave them unattended, as I did for 1 small minute: the chickpeas pop and I had a few that who flew the coop.
Well!! was I surprised. Not only we really enjoyed the nuttiness of the chickpeas, the Brussels sprouts and cauliflower were delicious together. Sautéing them, made them tender. Roasting them sealed in the great flavor.
A fun winter side dish.
