Here is a dish you can make in literally less than ten minutes. You can have it for lunch, or pair it with some rice or noodles for dinner.
All you really need is a can of chickpeas (aka garbanzo beans), green onions, a lemon, shrimp and blackened seasoning. Okay, some oil, salt & pepper is necessary too, but most likely you have most of the ingredients at home already!
Ingredients (for one serving)
1 cup chickpeas
2 teaspoons lemon juice
4 green onions, sliced thinly
1 teaspoon olive oil
salt & pepper
1 teaspoon sunflower oil
10 shrimp, peeled and deveined
1. In a bowl combine chickpeas with green onions, lemon juice and olive oil. Season with salt & pepper.
2. Heat sunflower oil in a nonstick pan.
3. Dredge shrimp in blackened seasoning and cook for about 1-2 minutes on each side in sunflower oil.
4. Dish out your lemony chickpeas on a plate and top with hot shrimp. Eat!
