I greeted New Year with breakfast. I see this as a great omen for the new year. Usually I’m too sleepy to think about food and settle for the overnight porridge or cereal with milk or yogurt.
And today I made… scrambled chickpeas.
Here follows a moment of mutual incomprehension. It is not a scrambled egg with the addition of chickpeas, but the dish like scrambled eggs. Without eggs. With chickpeas.
In English, there’s no problem, because polish”jajecznica” is “scrambled eggs”, so it’s “scrambled chickpeas.” And although in the Polish language works word “tofucznica” (ie, scrambled eggs made of tofu), how to call mine dish? Cieciornica? Ciecierzycnica? Ugly words and extremely difficult to pronounce.
Beans on New Year’s breakfast is quite grated tradition. In the British Isles, Northern Europe compulsory addition to breakfast the beans “black eye”. In Poland and Central Europe reigns peas.
So we can stretch a little tradition and serve chickpeas.
Scrambled chickpea is a simple and extremely fast food. Good too, if you come to it without prejudice. 🙂 I know that scrambled eggs are made with eggs, but mine is with the chickpeas. And it’s really good.
Bon Appetit 🙂
40 dag of cooked chickpeas (let us retain a tablespoon or two of water from cooking chickpeas)
1 small onion
1 teaspoon turmeric
0.5 tsp salt
0.5 tsp black pepper
2 – 3 cloves of garlic
1 – 2 tablespoons of coconut oil
- Peel onion and finely chop.
- Garlic very finely chop.
- Cooked chickpeas (you can use canned chickpeas) translate into a bowl and crush with a fork (or tamper potato), so that part of the grain remains intact. If it’s too dry, you can add a little water saved from cooking chickpeas.
- Warm up the oil in a pan, add onion. Season lightly with salt and pepper and fry until the onions begin to be transparent.
- Add the garlic and fry until the garlic and the onions begin to brown.
- Add the turmeric and mix thoroughly.
- In the end, add the chickpeas. Fry, stirring approx. 5 – 7 minutes.
Bon Appetit 🙂
