Summer Chickpea Quinoa

There’s nothing better than fresh produce from a farmer’s market – food tastes better knowing you’re supporting local, sustainable farming. For this recipe I used half quinoa and half brown rice, but you could use all of just one of those.

Ingredients:
1 c. cooked quinoa
1 c. cooked brown rice
1 tsp. rosemary
1 can chickpeas (drained)
1 medium zucchini
1/2 head of cauliflower
1/2 tsp. paprika
1/2 tsp. cumin
2 tsp. olive oil
1 tsp. dried parsley
1/4 tsp. garlic salt

Combine quinoa and rice after it is cooked. Dice cauliflower and zucchini and stir into quinoa/rice mix along with chickpeas. Add all spices and stir well, then add more spices to taste.

Asian Rice with Vegetables

We used some vegetables that we had left over in the fridge but this dish would really go well with a variety of other sorts. Also, the cauliflower was roasted in the oven to make it crispy and brown.

1/2 cup cooked brown rice
1 teaspoon peanut butter
1 1/2 teaspoons soy sauce
1/4 cup sliced mushrooms, cooked
1/4 cup broccoli, cooked
1/4 cup cauliflower, cooked
handful of cashews

Mix together the rice soy sauce and peanut butter in a bowl until well combined. Add in the mushrooms, broccoli, cauliflower and cashews and toss together. Serve warm or cold.

Chickpea, Parsley and Cucumber Salad

This is a new refreshing salad perfect a hot day!

1/2 cup parsley, chopped
1/2 large cucumber
1 can chickpeas
1 teaspoon paprika,
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1/3 cup green beans, cooked and chopped

Prepare chick peas as directed in Roasted Chickpeas with Rice and Kale. Dice the cucumber.  Put parsley, cucumber, green beans and chickpeas in a bowl and drizzle the remaining olive oil on top.  Toss gently and serve immediately.

Roasted Chickpeas with Rice and Kale

The chickpeas were really the highlight of this recipe. They are plenty flavorful on their own but they can also make a nice addition to many dishes.

Ingredients:
1/2 can garbanzo beans(chickpeas), rinsed and drained
2 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 cup raw chopped kale
1/2 cup cooked rice
8-10 brussels sprouts

Toss the chickpeas with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and paprika. Spread on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Slice brussels sprouts in half and place on a lined cookie. Drizzle olive oil over the brussels sprouts. Bake the chickpeas and brussels sprouts for 15-20 minutes at 350. Allow to cool for at least half an hour. Cut the brussels sprouts in to bite sized pieces or in quarters. Toss the chickpeas and brussels sprouts with the rice and kale.

Scallion Pancakes

Who knew these could be so easy and so delicious?! Just as good as your favorite Chinese takeout.

Ingredients:
2 c. flour
1 c. boiling water
1 bunch scallions
2 tbsp. sesame oil
Olive oil
Salt
Soy sauce (for dipping)

Using a food processor or just by hand, mix flour and 3/4 c. of the boiling water. Continue to add boiling water until the dough sticks together. Remove dough from mixing bowl and knead for a minute or so and shape into a ball. Allow to sit, covered, in a bowl for ~30 minutes. Split dough into 4 evenly sized pieces. Roll one piece out on a floured surface until it is a 6-8″ circle. Use a pastry brush to coat with sesame oil. Roll up dough into a tube shape (like a jelly roll) and then roll that tube into a spiral (like a cinnamon bun). Flatten and roll out again into a circle. Brush with sesame oil and then cover with scallions. Once again roll into a tube and then into a spiral, and finally roll out flat once more. Coat a skillet with oil and heat on medium-high. Once the oil is hot, place pancake into pan and shake gently. After ~2 minutes, flip pancake so that both sides are golden brown. Allow to cool slightly and cut into 4-6 pieces. Serve with soy sauce.
