Mashed Potatoes, Chickpea Gravy, Laird Peas, Pan-fried String Beans

Dinner 2/13 by Brian

• Mashed Potatoes

• Chickpea Gravy

Laird Peas

• Pan-fried String Beans

Tonight, Brian made mashed potatoes using potatoes from a neighboring organic farmer. The chickpea gravy recipe is from Vegan with a Vengeance by Isa Chandra Moskowitz. It's called gravy in the recipe, but it always ends up the consistency of mashed potatoes when Brian makes it. I think he affectionately called it sludge.

Laird Peas
are my favorite way to use up cooked chickpeas. They added a little bit of texture to the mash and gravy. The string beans were an ingenious use of dilly beans (canned pickled green beans) from our winter stocks. He fished out the beans and heated them up in a dry pan (drying them out) with a little Stan Sauce.
