Curried Chickpeas, Spaghetti Squash and Broccoli

Dinner 6/9 by Brian

• Curried Chickpeas, Spaghetti Squash and Broccoli

• Brown Basmati Rice

• Spinach with Balsamic Dressing

• Chocolate Pudding

Tonight's dinner was delicious and filling. The spaghetti squash was the last one hanging around from this past fall, so I'm glad that it finally made it onto our plates. Apparently they are pretty indestructable and stay good for quite a while. This dish had broccoli and garlic scapes along with the chickpeas. Really tasty!

The chocolate pudding was super-delicious! It was a slightly modified version of the recipe from "La Dolce Vegan" by Sarah Kramer. We don't usually have cashews around, but we recently bought some pipe clean* from East Wind Community that was cashew macadamia. Thomas had the good idea to put some cash-mac (as we like to call it around these parts) and water into the blender to create something like cashew milk. I still can't get over how creamy and rich this pudding tastes.

Oh, and I ate spinach and rice, too. :)

*Pipe clean is the nut butter that is created when they change nuts/saltiness on their machinery. We end up getting it at a discount because it's an un-marketable product. In the past we've gotten a variety of peanut, almond, cashew, and macadamia blends. Now that they have a dedicated peanut line (to reduce the possibility of triggering people's peanut allergies), the non-peanut pipe clean we get is an exotic treat.
