Though I embrace nearly every legume with open arms and a hungry tummy, my pantry being a concrete overflowing testament to that statement, if I absolutely had to choose a favorite, say a desert island essential, I would say buttery soft, plump, and infinitely versatile chickpeas are always a consideration when it comes to meal planning.
Spice them up, mash them up, make them into hummus, little bites, even desserts, one of my latest experiments was a fusion-style dish that also features peanut butter for extra protein and legume goodness.
If you haven't used peanut butter in a savory dish before, you are missing out. The texture, creaminess and protein count is unmatched. Squash fills things out nicely here, and not to be missed are the spices, red pepper and sprinkling of fresh cilantro and zesty lime.
