Quick Curried Chickpeas

Cooking dinner after a long day of work can be a less than desirable experience. Some days I come home and am literally too tired to cook.  This recipe may become a go to on those nights. This is super fast, full of flavor and nutritious to boot.

And, you many already know how I feel about the mighty chickpea-  I can honestly say that if I were stranded on a desert island and could bring only one staple with me it would be chickpeas.

Quick Curried Chickpeas

1 can chickpeas rinsed and drained
1/2 medium onion, chopped
1/2 red pepper, chopped
1/2 orange pepper, chopped
1/4 green pepper, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp parsley, chopped
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp curry powder
1/2 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp turmeric
Dash cayenne pepper
Salt and pepper to taste

In a saute pan heat olive oil over medium heat. Add the peppers, onion, garlic, salt and pepper and saute unitl they start to soften.  Add the chickpeas, parsley, curry powder, allspice, turmeric and cayenne pepper. Stir and cover. Allow to cook for about five minutes or until chickpeas are warmed through and slightly browned.

Serve over a bed of lettuce.
