Two Meals In One!

on January 29, 2015

The other night, dinner was two sides combined into one meal. Roasted Brussels sprouts & sautéed garbanzo beans. I already had the beans made from the day before, so I just had to roast the Brussel sprouts… Easy and sooo delicious!

1⃣ Brussels sprouts –
🔺clean and cut off stems
🔺place in a bowl and completely coat with extra virgin olive oil
🔺sprinkle garlic powder
🔺place on baking sheet or aluminum tin
🔺bake for 45 min at 400F

2⃣ Garbanzo beans –
🔺you can use canned or dried
🔺I used dried – soak for 24hrs then drain
🔺boil until tender – about 90 min
🔺if using canned rinse and boil for 5 min
🔺(save a 1/2 cup of the water from boiling)
🔺finely chop 1/4 cup onions
🔺finely chop 2 cloves of garlic
🔺finely chop 1/4 cup fresh parsley
🔺 generously coat pan with extra virgin olive oil
🔺sautèe on low heat, onions, garlic and parsley for about 7 – 10 minutes
🔺a splash of white wine (optional)
🔺combine garbanzo beans, a 1/2 cup of the saved water from the boiling and the sautéed mixture. Mix well.

3⃣ Combine
🔺add both garbanzo beans and Brussels sprouts to same plate.
🔺eat up and enjoy!
