Yummy in my tummy

So tonight I made a "new vegan" dish that was the very first one this go-round that we all ABSOLUTELY LOVED. And because Ben needs the computer tonight, so I don't have time to sit and think of a more fascinating and eloquent post, here's the recipe:

Chick Peas Italiano

1 Tbsp plus 1 tsp veg oil
1 1/2 c chopped onions
1 1/2 c chopped green pepper
~3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 can chick peas, rinsed and drained
1 can tomatoes, undrained, chopped
1 8-oz can tomato sauce
~1/2 tsp dried oregano
~1/2 tsp dried basil

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onions, green pepper, garlic. Cook until onions are lightly browned, 10-15 minutes.

Add remaining ingredients, mixing well. Cover, reduce heat to low, cook 20 minutes.

Spoon over noodles or rice.

This came from the cookbook Lean and Luscious Meatless by Bobbie Hinman and Millie Snyder that my nice friend Bev from the international moms' club loaned me. We will definitely be having it again....and again, and again, and again!

I did see this and thought it sounded good, but I need a picture to know if I would really like it!!! My lack of imagination is staggering at times. Megan

P.S. your other dish (you know, the one with the picture!), is already on my list of things to make.
