Today I have two great dishes to begin your day with. Herbed Chickpeas with Wilted Greens and a fried egg, and Scrambled eggs served alongside madras lentils and greens. Both dishes are healthy, packed full of protein and vitamins and guaranteed to keep you going for hours. Make the most of your day………Picture above is a view of Camelback mountain.
If you are starting this year off wanting to add more veggies and protein to your diet, these dishes will make a great start. The herbed chickpeas is a recipe I adapted from the Bon Appetite January 2016 magazine. Canned chickpeas are cooked over medium heat in olive oil until they have crisped up, about 12 to 15 minutes. The peas were removed from the skillet and set aside. Then fresh herbs and spinach was added, wilted down and then combined with the beans. I finished the dish by frying some eggs and served everything over a piece of multi grain toast. Delicious!
Scrambled Eggs with Madras Lentils and Greens
2 eggs scrambled
½ cup madras lentils (lentils and red beans in a creamy spiced up tomato sauce, still working on recipe)
2 cup fresh spinach
Heat up lentils and greens separately, scramble eggs.
Serve alongside one another, enjoy separately or mix together. Delicious with naan and flat breads.
