Who says you need meat? Grab a can of chickpeas-aka garbanzo beans- and stir up easy, healthful dishes.

How to Make It

Step 1

In a large skillet (preferably one with a lid), warm olive oil over medium heat until hot. Carefully add onion, garlic and salt, and sauté, stirring often, until onion becomes transparent and garlic just begins to turn golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes.

Step 2

Toss in broccoli; sauté for 3 minutes. Add chickpeas, broth and red pepper. Stir once, cover and cook for 3 minutes more, just to heat through and finish cooking broccoli.

Step 3

Uncover, season with pepper, sprinkle with Parmesan and serve.

Absolutely love this. Found it while googling "Vegetarian Recipes on a budget". I'm a "mostly-vegetarian". Trying to get my 9-year old to control his weight. He tried it once and now wants it every day. Easy to make. Very quick. One variation I do is to add Brussel sprouts. Sometimes I replace broccoli with it, and sometimes I go with both broccoli and sprouts. If I add Brussel sprouts, I throw them in at the very beginning, so they can brown a little bit along with the onions.

It is seriously the easiest and best tasting recipe I've found on this website. I also added sauteed chicken, which was coated in bread crumbs. It is just amazing! My boyfriend and I both love it.

I added sauteed chicken to this simple, easy meal to increase the protein content. It was very easy to make, and I will definitely make it again, on one of those nights when I want a healthy, nutritious meal, without a lot of effort.

Perfect for a night when you dont want to go to the store cook too much. A lot of the ingredients will probably already be in your fridge or pantry and cooking this from prep to plate takes 30 mins max (probably closer to 20). Tastes very yummy, especially the red pepper, and great for vegetarians!
