Well, this is certainly no food blog, nor do I intend for it to become one. In saying that, I love to cook, eat, and talk about food - a lot. I could easily post meals and recipes on here daily, but I am finding it very hard to take photos that make my food look appetizing and even more difficult to take a styled food pic of the completed, ready to eat product. I make a lot of stews, beans, and pasta, all of which tend to look like large messes of brown mush in a bowl. Another obstacle is the lack of natural light in my kitchen, especially right now when we have more darkness than daylight (the opposite will be true very soon though!).
This recipe is based on a dish my Cuban friend taught me a few years ago. I am terrible at following recipes, and even worse at writing them. This is not as much of a recipe as it is a deconstruction of one of my favorite, quick stewed bean meals.
Cilantro (and dried coriander)
Oregano (I use a little dry and fresh)
2 Cans of Chickpeas
This tastes especially incredible with a fresh loaf of Jim Lahey's No-Knead Bread (more on that another day).
