Tag Archive: Garbanzo


I have the best way of cooking beer bratwurst ever.  I discovered it about ten years ago while cooking by candlelight after Hurricane Wilma.  We had gas and could therefore cook, but no electricity.

Brown beer bratwurst in olive oil over medium heat until browned on all sides.  Pour in beer to about an inch in the skillet.  Cover and simmer until internal temperature is 165 F or more.  You can keep this warm on low for hours, or in a crock pot.

I had leftover broccoli quinoa salad that wasn’t getting eaten.  I freshened it up with some garbanzo beans, some leftover cabbage coleslaw and sweet thai chili sauce.  The second go round was really yummy.  Much better than the first version.


Chipotle Bourbon Chicken (second time)

My daughter, Olivia, who had the baby (Konnor) on Wednesday, came home from the hospital Friday.


I wanted to contribute, so I went over with a second Little Big Meal deal I bought and made them dinner.  She sent me a sweet thank you today, as she eats some of the leftovers.  I decided that what it needed was fresh vegetables cut bigger than the frozen seasoning veggies I had used, and more beans, so I added in cannellini beans too.  It was way better!

Here goes . . .

24 oz. cubed chicken (again I cut it smaller)

1 packet Hak’s Chipotle Bourbon sauce

Cooked brown rice


My add ins:

1 large sweet onion, sliced

1 bag small sweet peppers, sliced

2 Tbsp. canola oil

1 can garbanzo beans, drained

1 can cannellini beans, drained

1 32 oz. container vegetable broth

  1.  Bring vegetable broth to a boil.  Add in 2 c. brown rice.  (The package that comes with a deal leaves you enough for another night)
  2. Heat oil in skilled and brown chicken over medium heat, just until no pink shows.
  3. Meanwhile, slice veggies.
  4. Remove chicken from skillet and add in veggies.  Cook until soft.
  5. Place chicken on top of veggies.
  6. Top with beans.
  7. Top with sauce.
  8. Stir gently and simmer until rice is done.
  9. Serve with the salad that comes with it, or save it for another night.
  10. Enjoy the cookies and tea that come with it too!  This is the best Little Big Meal so far.  I can’t wait until next Thursday!!
