Mexican inspired chickpea bowl (4-6 servings):

  • 2 cans chickpeas
  • 2 cans white (or black) beans
  • 1 large avocado
  • 1 large can corn (organic)
  • 1 large white onion
  • Chives (gressløk)
  • Tahini
  • Spices: salt, pepper, cummin, paprika and turmeric (gurkemeie)
  • Coconut oil

Heat the coconut oil in a pan, and add the chopped white onion. Let it cook until it becomes glazed and caramellized, and then add the corn. Let them cook together and add the spices. Lastly, add all the beans into the pan or pot, and add more spice if you prefer. The avocado is added in after taking the mixture of the heat, and the bowl is lastly topped with chives and a tahini dressing.
