CHARRED CHICKPEA POPPERS

i tried a few things with the fresh chickpeas, and my favorite by far was charring them. i didn’t really have high expectations for them, but they were great. they’re even more fun to eat than edamame because the pods are filled mostly with air and they pop as you squeeze the chickpea out.

FRIED CHICKPEAS ARE THE BEST THING IN THE WORLD

seriously. i’ve always loved chickpeas, but my life was changed forever when i had my first fried one. they’re crispy and crunchy and nutty and ridiculously delicious. i eat them mostly in salads, but the leftovers make a really addicting snack.

FARRO STUFFED ACORN SQUASH

i usually only have acorn squash around thanksgiving, but i saw it in the store this weekend and remembered i had some farro at home i had been meaning to try. i’ve always used my mom’s recipe for a cranberry-orange stuffing, but i’ve been doing a lot of orange lately and opted for something savory instead.

TARO CHIPS & CHICKPEA MASH

taro root is hairy and funky on the outside but pretty swirly wiggly purple and white on the inside. the first time i had taro was in some kind of dessert bun at a friend’s house, but most recently i’ve had them in chip form. eric and i were on vacation last year and we ordered about half the menu at nombe, a freaking delicious izakaya restaurant in the mission district of san francisco (where we also saw a flyer for a staged version of hedwig and the angry inch–we had tickets before dinner was over <3). the taro chips and edamame hummus were amaze, and i knew i needed to make my own version when i saw them in the store.¬†i went with the smallest of the large roots and decided to do a kind of mashed chickpea dip (not quite hummus) to go with them.
