95. chickpea picatta.

More food on the blog tonight…Hoping to get to some crafting soon…or at least get some baking in here!

Tonight I made chickpea picatta, from Appetite for Reduction. (so its vegan AND low-fat!)  I think I made this before, but I don’t remember it tasting THIS good. The sauce it makes is like crack…It tastes all lemony and buttery, yet there’s nothing buttery in it.

I chose to serve it over some whole wheat linguine because I was really hungry, but I also made the cauliplots from the book (which are basically mashed potatoes and cauliflower), which she suggests serving this over. And we ate it both ways 🙂

I noticed after it was all gobbled up, that we forgot to add spinach (she suggests arugula, but I had spinach on hand.) Oops. This recipe was fairly easy to throw together with ingredients I had on hand (I didnt have white wine, so I just skipeed it) and I plan to put it in rotation. I think this would be a great dinner to serve to dinner guests as well!

Here’s where you can find the recipe.

Yum.
