Bottom of the Barrel!

This week will be my last in Gainesville for a little while, so I'm trying to use up some stuff in my pantry. For some reason, this intention has translated into a whole lotta Indian food! Made some simple moong lentil dal yesterday and tonight, shared a fun family dinner of what I have decided to call:

Indian Pizza
serves 3

I used a Socca recipe recommended by David Leibowitz for the crust, then made this to go on top:

[Chana Masala]
1 tablespoon coconut oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 can chickpeas, with liquid
1/2 teaspoon curry powder
1/2 teaspoon coriander
1 teaspoon garam masala

Saute the garlic in oil over medium heat until fragrant, then pour in the whole can of chickpeas, undrained. Mix in spices, then cover for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Spread chickpeas over the socca, cut like a pizza and serve! We ate it with...

Garam Masala Green Beans
a slight adaptation from the Vegetarian Times recipe, serves 3

1 tablespoon coconut oil
2 cups green beans, halved and ends snapped
1 teaspoon garam masala
1/2 teaspoon mustard seeds
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup water

Steam all ingredients, covered, for around 8 minutes.
