This recipe is so simple. It’s based off of a recipe from Meg Wolff (remember my macrobiotic experiment?). Here are my thoughts on macrobiotics (I love it):
- Becoming Whole (book review)
- Week 2 wrapup
- Week 1 wrapup
- Lessons learned
- 1 can chickpeas, drained (~2 cups)
- 1 small/medium onion, roughly chopped
- 2-3 teaspoons sesame oil
- 1-2 tablespoons grated ginger
- salt, to taste
- <1/4 cup water
- Heat the oil in a wok/pan over high heat. Add the ginger and chopped onion; saute for 2-3 minutes (it should start to smell really good).
- Add the chickpeas and saute for another 3-4 minutes.
- Add a few tablespoons of water to the pan and stir everything around. As the water evaporates, mash a few of the chickpeas so that some are mushed and some are still whole. Add salt, to taste.
- Serve hot with bulgar, or other grain of choice.
Bobby and I both had ours with bulgar. I adore bulgar. Definitely a favorite carb. It fluffs up so much more than rice does. For dessert the night we had this dish, I had more bulgar topped with maple syrup.
I’m off to enjoy my Saturday… what are your weekend plans?

I like both ginger and onions, I’ll definitely try something similar! 😀 bulgur is great! WW couscous is another great quick grain!

Love the chickpeas; I miss bulgar 🙁
Weekend plans = studying. Whoo freaking hoo.
I’ve never tried bulgar! But I have never met a carb I didn’t like yet, so I’ll have to give it a try.
The gingery chickpeas look delicious and straightforward…I’m bookmarking this one!
Hope you have a great weekend, Maggie!
I love all your macrobiotic recipes Maggie. Keep them coming.
Weekend plans – date night tonight and perhaps some yoga and football watching tomorrow.

Mmm, these look and sound delicious! I have some bulgar in the pantry, maybe I’ll try this!
I’ve never tried bulgur before, but now I’ve got to! Never met a grain I didn’t like 😉
Plans: homework and church!
