Tomato Chickpea Sauce with Mozzarella Cheese over Perciatelli
Alone time is really good to me and for me all at once. On the second day of Christmas? By far the best 🔥
Fresh from my oven! The first day of Christmas has passed with the leftover stacked 3 bell pepper casserole, and then, a fresh start to come into the bridge.
Simply, this pasta is one of inviting variations of comfort food for easy and quick meal ideas.
The sauce was truly hearty and earthy, plus, pretty much versatile because it’s based on meatless stew and soup as food for sharing. You might get the point of what I’m trying to say. It derived from a typical Algerian pairing of tomatoes and chickpeas, which means you could take it for tasty couscous and acini di pepe stew. It will come out nicely adding meat to your dish or not, either way!
Made from tomato paste, 1 large sized onion grated, a handful of grated carrots, 1 cup blended chickpeas, 2 tsp. paprika, 1 tsp. mild harissa, lemon juice, a hint of mint and parsley chopped, pepper and kosher salt.
The thing is, to bring umami in every single ingredient. It won’t be packed as a sweetness, even so, it’s unlikely to stop drawing into the station. After all, you would see the first sight of another way to go irresistible plant based dishes.
• A few notable options for treasured winter taste
Option 1 – garlic cloves chopped, ground ginger, preserved lemon and mini bulgur balls for a comforting stew
Option 2 – chopped artichoke, fava beans, garlic cloves chopped, a bit of saffron threads, ground ginger and lemon juice for a hearty soup
Option 3 – chopped Swiss chard, arugula and roasted aubergine flesh. On that, 1 handful of freekeh prepared, rather than blended chickpeas. One of nice ideas for plant based diet recipes.
