My most recent meal from the Thug Kitchen 101 cookbook was Swiss Chard Tomato Spaghetti with Balsamic-Glazed Chickpeas. And I have to admit, it was not a resounding success.
Perhaps my lack of success was because I used kale from the front yard garden and did not use Swiss Chard. I doubt it, but, I have to try and blame something!
The problem with the dish was that it did not have any “punch” to it. It was just “okay”.
The balsamic glazed chick peas were good. In fact, I am likely to make them again even without the swiss chard and tomato spaghetti.
The thing that I am really enjoying about my new Thug Kitchen 101 cookbook is that I am trying new things, I am adding new ingredients, spices and flavourings to the pantry and I am eating much more of a plant-based diet.
