Minted Moroccan Mango Chickpeas

Do you ever have those moments of ‘food envy’? You’re waiting in a busy restaurant for someone to take your order, meanwhile, the waiter brings your table neighbour a bit plate of something delicious. *grumble* Or maybe you’re sitting down with friends on your lunch break, and as you unwrap your PB&J for the fourth time this week, your pal unpacks an elaborate looking dish. *drool* This recipe is a product of those moments of food envy.

Minted Moroccan Mango Chickpeas A friend of mine unpacked a delicious looking chickpea dish during the lunch hour of my yoga teacher training. She directed me to the source of the recipe, but I tweaked it majorly to suit my tastes! The first time around (when I took the pictures) the ingenious idea of adding mango hadn’t yet graced my brain; thank goodness for culinary epiphanies :P

  2. I get food envy almost daily. Not that I don’t eat good food but cooking for 1 means you have a lot of leftovers and repeat meals. Ugh

  6. Talk about food envy thinking about my packed work lunch after seeing your dish here. I wonder if mangoes are on offer in one of the stores around my corner this week …

  7. Oh yes, I’ve had all kinds of moments of food envy when dining or taking an order! I’m not a huge fan of mango in my savory dishes – but I love mango & sticky rice together! But the other ingredients in the stew sound lovely – love parsley, mint and chickpeas! I would add loads of harissa, too for an authentic Moroccan flavor!

  8. Hi Suzanne,
    What a pleasure to discover your wonderful veggie-lovin’ blog and to participate in Healthy Vegan Fridays! I love all types of vegan bean dishes, but chickpeas are a favorite of mine and I eat them as often as possible in a variety of ways. Your recipe for Minted Moroccan Mango Chickpeas is the most creative and delicious approach to chickpea cuisine that I have seen! I can’t wait to make this! I have subscribed to your blog and I am following you on social media, so I look forward to enjoying your recipes and posts regularly. I will be back for next week’s Healthy Vegan Friday as well! All the best, Deborah
