Easy Lunch and Chickpea Failure

I invited Ashley over for lunch, after her class and before I had to leave for work, which typically results in a late lunch.  I had some left over eggplant and portabello mushrooms.  Ashley encouraged me to do something with them and I did!

Nothing innovative, simple fried some onions and garlic, drenched them in pasta sauce, added the sliced eggplant and mushrooms topped with vegan cheese.  Baked it for a bit and it was great!


However, we also decided to try a chickpea dish that was a total failure.  In fact, it was so bad that neither of us finished our plate.  Yuck.  Win some, lose some.

Quality photoshop skills, do not deny it.

I am all over the eggplant/mushroom lunch...

The chickpeas don't look bad to me, but I love your doctored photo! LOL!

Clever of you to have the eggplant and mushroom bake as the main then!

Did you start with dried chickpeas? Here where I leave they are all imported and heat treated and impossible to cook. I have to buy canned chickpeas (always from Italy, to be safe) fancy that!!

I am a chickpea snob. Geeeeeeeee

At first I thought that "x" was made out of wire LOL! Nice!

I made something like that with eggplants recently and loved it so much! I added some lasagna noodles and it was like eggplant parm-sagna..

As for the chickpeas, it was worth a shot!
