    Moroccan style is good – you could use the filling from these parcels and just add chooped tomatoes / passata to make a stew. ‘Tis a bit sweet, so the spicy aubergine in the recipe goes well with it.

    Or throw into a good tomato based curry. They go well with augergine, spinach and lots of spice.

    Cauliflower & chickpea curry for me:

    – Boil a cauliflower;
    – Saute onions, garlic and ginger for 10 mins;
    – Add cumin seeds, star anise, corriander, salt, pepper – saute for another 5;
    – Mash and then add cauliflower;
    – Add chickpeas and tinned tomatoes.

    Go!

    Ton – how do the butterbeans come out after an hour of simmering?

    Mattar pilau.

    Couple,of tablespoons of oil in a big heavy pan. Teaspoon of cumin seeds, half a dozen crushed peppercorns, half a teaspoon of turmeric, half a teaspoon salt, four or five cloves, bit of cinnamon stick, four or five green cardomum pods, four or five crushed dried chilies and a bay leaf, heat through and add a couple of handfuls of basmati rice per person. Stir in the hot oil for about three minutes, then add enough chicken or vegetable stock to cover the rice and then as much again.

    Stir in a can of drained chickpeas, plus a couple of handfuls of frozen peas, bring to the boil and cook, covered, on a low heat for ten minutes, stirring occasionally to stop it all sticking to the bottom of the pan. Add more stock if its drying out before the rice is tender, but don’t let it get too sticky. Add a handful of chopped coriander before serving.

    some collapse, but it all thickens the mix.
    I made a huge pan of this last night for tea, and will add some grilled chicken to it tonight and eat the last of it.

    You would’nt pay £200 to have a lentil on your face.

    Cheers, I’ll try a modified version of your dish later this week.

    I thought Chorizo was, you know, meat.

    Pity about the no meat bit, you could have made cocido.

    Chickpea+aubergine curry:
    Fry an onion till soft, add some chilies and fry a bit more.
    Add a diced aubergine and fry some more.
    Add your spices: garam masala, curry powder etc.
    Add a can or two of chopped tomatoes and the chickpeas
    Add 6 or more tsp of coconut milk
    Cook for 30min

    Chickpeas with carrots:
    Fry a tsp of cumin seeds for a minute in olive oil + butter
    Slice 4 or 5 large carrots
    Add the carrots and fry for another 7 min or so until slightly brown
    Add a clove of garlic and some paprika
    Fry for a minute more
    Add the chickpeas and a splash of orange juice
    Serve when heated through
