Marinated Chick Peas

Isn’t it funny how the easiest dishes to toss together are often the ones that people love the most? Take these marinated chick peas, for example. .

All I do is drain chick peas and fold throughout some extra-virgin olive oil with minced fresh garlic, black pepper and minced flat-leaf Italian parsley.

There is not a recipe for this–it’s just an eyeball thing. Trust yourself and feel free to add things like olives, chopped roasted peppers, minced jalapenos, poached or grilled shrimp. You can change the parsley to cilantro and add corn kernels (blanched briefly if fresh, drained if canned). You can also swap black beans for the chick peas–or mix them. Just play and go where your taste buds lead.

Marinated chick peas:

  • 1 or more cans of chick peas (also called garbanzo beans) drained in a sieve and rinsed and drained well again
  • Garlic-parsley oil, to taste (mix minced or pressed garlic into a bowl and add enough extra-virgin olive oil to cover generously. Stir in some chopped parsley, black pepper and, if desired, some crushed chili flakes).
  • Extra virgin olive oil, to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper and Kosher salt, to taste
