Simple Balsamic Chickpeas

These balsamic chickpeas are so quick and easy to pull together.  We have them frequently, especially on weeknights.  They are very versatile and work in a lot of different meals.  Plus I just really like them!

Simple Balsamic Chickpeas
Serves 2 (can easily be doubled)

1 can chickpeas, rinsed & drained
2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 Tbsp pure maple syrup

Combine all ingredients in a saucepan on the stove.  Bring to a boil.  Cook over medium heat, covered, for 3-5 minutes.  Simmer uncovered for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

These chickpeas make a nice vegetarian main course on their own and pair well with my favorite kale salad.

They also work well when added to a wrap or salad or as part of the bowls that are so popular these days.

I am so happy it’s Friday!  We should have nice weather so I’m hoping to get out in my garden and plant lettuce and radishes.  I love the beginning of gardening season when it seems like anything is possible.  Before the weeds and heat set in and I get a little more disgruntled. I also have a couple non-food projects in mind for this weekend so please check back next week.
