Fat Free Vegetarian Meal

Posted by Lara I.

I made this meal last night and found it to be very flavorful, and healthy. I served it over white rice. It's a version of a recipe found in Moosewood Cookbook.



1 med onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 small chiles, coarsly chopped
1/2 cup water
1 T tamarind concentrate
1/2 cup hot water
1 med tomato, chopped (or two Romas)
1 inch piece of ginger, grated
2 cups canned or cooked chick peas (garbanzos)

Saute onion, garlic, and chiles in a saucepan using 1/2 cup water
until onions begin to carmelize (about 10 minutes), adding more water
if necessary to keep from burning.

Mix the tamarind concentrate in 1/2 cup hot water. Combine the onion
mixture, tamarind, tomato, and ginger. Puree. Return puree to pan,
add chick peas and simmer for half an hour until sauce is thick.

Serves 3-4

When I was a young person living on my own, I got the Moosewood Cookbook at a women's bookstore in Baltimore. When I'm cooking for one, I never really cook meat. You can never get meat in a single portion and the cleanup is a nightmare. Plus, they say vegetarians are trimmer and when I was a single gal, that was priority number one! Plus, it was cheaper for me to get farm fresh veggies than meat.
I love garbanzo beans. They are full of flavor and simple to prepare. Thanks for sharing -- great recipe.
Yeah, I am also fond of beans,in general. It seems like a good recipe. Thanks for sharing.
