Mediterranean Chickpeas

Breakfast: Apple oatmeal

Lunch: Mediterranean chickpeas with brown couscous

Dinner: Falafels in a wrap from Gazhale!

It seems that lately my mornings have been characterized by me not having quite enough time to make either breakfast OR lunch properly, so it's a good job that hectic meals like this exist. Even if you're on serious time constraints you can knock this out quick as a flash, and it has that lovely mediterranean tomato-y warmth that reminds you of holidays in Spain. Just what you need for fall.

You'll need:
(Feeds 2)
1/2 cup chickpeas
1/2 cup zucchini
2 large tomato
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar

Place zuchhini and chickpeas in a pan and heat gently for 2 or 3 minutes, stirring
Add in paprika and stir to coat
Add in the tomato and a little water
Heat for 5 minutes, stirring continuously
Add in the balsamic vinegar and stir for another minute
Serve on brown couscous

With the couscous, this is literally a ten minute meal. And its a tasty one too!

This would make a great tapas dish if you are so inclined, perhaps with some patatas bravas and roasted eggplant. That makes me want to have a dinner party.
