I needed to check the calorie count on this recipe which I'd gotten from the internet.
The original recipe called for slightly larger amounts of chickpeas and squash, 8 leaves of mint and a handful of coriander instead of basil and oregano. I began with the amount of squash I'd brought home from the green market and modified the chickpea amount to fit that. I didn't have mint or coriander on hand when I made the recipe, so I made the substitution. The flavor is different but I doubt there's any difference in calorie count.
The cooking time stated is for all prep,cooking the squash, using canned chickpeas.
If you cook the chickpeas from their dried state the cooking time will be longer.Submitted by ANNE-ELIZ
This quick and healthy side dish takes just minutes to prepare! And as a bonus, it's an easy way to get the kids to eat their vegetables. (And if you don't like using butter spray, you could melt a few pats of butter and brush the butter on with a pastry brush - whatever your preference!)Submitted by MATCM81
