Quick and Easy Smoky Chickpeas
All you need are:
- 2-3 chopped onions (3 if they are small)
- 3 large carrots, sliced
- 4 cloves minced garlic
- 2-3 cans chickpeas (depending on how big a batch you want to make--I usually use 3)
- 4 tspns chopped cilantro
- 1-2 cans diced tomatoes
- 1 tspn salt
- 1 tspn thyme
- 1tspn smoked paprika
|Pre-cooking some of the ingredients|
In a pan on the stovetop, saute the chopped onions, carrots, garlic, and cilantro, in a little olive oil (or in a bit of water), cooking until softened, just for a few minutes.
Add thyme, salt, and tomatoes, and cook for a bit longer, then throw everything into the Crockpot along with the chickpeas, and cook on high for 4 hours.
The chickpeas get sort of soft and creamy, and the smoked paprika flavor goes really well with the carrots and tomatoes. This is one of those dishes that is great for lunches at work during the week when you want something warm and rich in flavor.
