Spiced Chickpeas with Yogurt and Pine Nuts

Caregory : Breakfast Recipes

More people should eat chickpeas at breakfast! The chefs at Marisa May’s now-shuttered restaurant SD26 used to make these stewy, savory chickpeas for her when she hadn’t gotten to eat something filling at home.


    • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

    • 1 large onion, finely chopped

    • 1 large garlic clove, minced

    • 1/2 teaspoon ancho chile powder

    • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

    • 1/8 teaspoon ground turmeric

    • Pinch of cayenne pepper

    • One 15-ounce can chickpeas, drained

    • 1 cup vegetable broth or water

    • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

    • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

    • 1/4 cup pine nuts

    • 1 1/3 cups Greek-style plain fat-free yogurt

    • 1 tablespoon chopped mint


    1. In a medium, deep skillet, heat the olive oil. Add the onion and garlic and cook over moderately high heat until softened, about 7 minutes. Stir in the chile powder, cumin, turmeric and cayenne and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the chickpeas and broth and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer over moderately low heat for 15 minutes. Stir in the lemon juice and boil over moderately high heat, uncovered, until the liquid is thickened, about 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

    2. Meanwhile, in a small, dry skillet, toast the pine nuts over moderate heat, stirring, until golden, about 4 minutes.

    3. Spoon the yogurt into shallow bowls. Top with the chickpeas, garnish with the mint and pine nuts and serve.
