Cheapest Chickpeas on Toast

The 4-bean version

1 TBSP olive oil

Half a brown onion, finely chopped

2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped

1 TBSP dried mixed herbs

One tin of chickpeas, drained

2 TBSP tomato paste

½ cup flat-leaf parsley, roughly chopped

Salt and pepper to taste

2 slices of bread

Butter (optional)

1. Heat oil in a frying pan
2. Add onion and garlic and fry until soft and glassy
3. Add dried mixed herbs and stir through
4. Add chickpeas and stir around for a few minutes
5. Add tomato paste and stir through until everything’s warm and starting to smell good
6. Season with salt and pepper
7. Stir through parsley for a few seconds
8. Toast your bread and butter it if you want (I take the cheaper option and leave it plain)
9. Spoon the chickpea mixture onto the toast and presto, lunch for two for less than $3.

I’ve also done this recipe with tinned beans – you can use any kind. I’ve also added left over grated parmesan and omitted the parsley. It’s really up to you what you put in it. I invite you to invent.
