So, the other day I entered a giveaway on Happy Herbivore and won! The prize was a copy of each of Lindsay’s books and a super cute elephant necklace. Here’s what happened to my necklace:
Anyway, J and I have been cooking like mad out of the cookbooks – shiny and new and all… We made this first:
It’s supposed to be a chickpea Ethiopian stew, but after we started making it we realized we had no chickpeas…so, we used navy beans and it was pretty good. We actually made this dish three times already – twice with navy beans and once with chickpeas. It’s really good, even the babies liked it – it’s supposed to be fairly spicy but we toned it down a lot.
I went and picked up some yellow split peas at my local Indian grocery last night for a different recipe I wanted to try and in typical fashion bought the wrong stuff. I’ll be posting more recipes as we cook more from these cookbooks.
