Cooking used to be my #1 hobby. I can no longer eat carbs, my wife went veg and my son is picky. The thrill is gone.
How do you keep the chickpeas from falling through the holes in the grill basket? Mine has pretty big holes...In general, I prefer concepts over recipes. Concepts can be endlessly tweaked. We usually eat broccoli rabe once per week. Tonight I grilled the broccoli rabe, along with an onion and chick peas in two separate grill baskets. We had it over whole wheat pasta--which we generally only eat when we serve greens over it. Instead of Italian style with olive oil and garlic as we might normally do with the pasta, I tied it all together with some Costco cilantro and lime Mexican style sour cream sauce. I can do broccoli rabe 50 times per year, different each time. It always turns out good, and often great.
With that being said, I love to hear what other people are cooking. It always gives me ideas.
Did it for about a decade - When I think about it, it’s more the business than the job.
