Quick & Healthy Fava Beans, Chickpeas, Olives with Tomatoes


I love cooking with chickpeas.  This dish is healthy, kid-friendly, quick and tasty and very filling.

Everyone in the family loved it!  It is perfect for lunch – filled with lots of  flavor, fiber and energy!  The best part is that you can make this anytime you want a meatless dish, or do not have a full stocked fridge.  It does not even take 30 minutes.

I also made a side of roasted colorful vegetables to serve alongside.

It paired perfectly well together. But  you can totally skip the side of roasted veggies and serve with a  slice of your favorite bread.

If you ask me, my answer would be to serve it with a slice of toasted pita pockets.

    Yum! I love cooking with chick peas too and have never thought of this combo; but I love the idea, the acidity of the olives matches well the mellowness of the chick peas; the tomatoes are a good background flavor. Wonderful!
    By the way, I would love a chance to check out your mom in-law’s recipe for kaak! Mine is just basic. Have you thought of posting it?

    Thanks Joumana! I am not much of a baker, but maybe one of these days I will post her recipe. Your pictures look identical to hers… so I think they could be very close. :)
