For Day 3 of BM# 22, I made this simple, protein rich rich dish with chickpeas and mixed vegetables. Today is day 12 without a working kitchen and we have kind of gotten used to this current routine of going to the bathroom to wash hands and walking down to the basement to wash the dishes. I have a feeling we'll probably continue doing the same even after we have everything installed. Today's dish is a one pot meal that is perfect for a weeknight's dinner. Chickpeas are one of my favorite beans and I love adding them to rice...
