Recipe

I like to think of this recipe as a twist on a more traditional Sofrito based dish. It uses all the classic components but incorporates chickpeas instead of the more traditional meat based proteins. The chickpeas cook in a delicious combination of onion, tomatoes, red peppers, serrano peppers, and cumin. For a less spicy version you can use a green bell pepper instead of the Serrano, which is definitely spicy. This dish is delicious served with brown rice, quinoa, couscous, or over a bed of spaghetti squash.
