Lazy Saturday Lunch

29 05 2010

As Tony took what was left of the basement to the eco-dump (where all your old building material is separated into it’s applicable heaps) I finished up some work and made lunch for when he got home. I didn’t feel like cooking but felt like a warm and healthful bowl of something. In this case you look in the fridge, take stock and create. I figured I could make a veggie, chickpea dish with the Lemon Tahini dip/sauce (see earlier post on tahini) that is a staple around here.

I steamed a bunch of chopped carrots for 5 min, added broccoli florets to it in the last minute and drained the lot and added it all back to the pot. I added half a can of chickpeas, 2 big blobs of tahini, juice of a lemon, splash of apple cider vinegar, cracked pepper and pinch of salt and warmed it on the stove on medium. I added a bit of water to ensure it was saucy. I spooned it into a bowl and although I had no rice (and realized this would have been great with soaked wild rice, no cooking required, oh well, next time), I grabbed a handful of pita chips and put them on the side. Lunch is served. Filled our tummy’s and gave us energy to do more work around the house.

Eat well, be well,
