Fridaaaaay!… Here, Chicky, Chicky, Chicky…

… It’s not soup.

… It’s not lentils.

… It is a pulse.

Here chicky, chicky, chicky…


This is so quick and dirty I don’t know why I didn’t think of it myself.

Skillet Cornbread with Chickpeas!

I found the recipe at And it’s a recipe from Canadaland. So… bonus points.

We eat a goodly amount of cornbread in our household, and I’m super excited about getting some protein in there in the form of pulses.

We just can’t tell G-Man that he’s gobbling up chickpeas with his cornbread.

That just won’t fly.

In fact, I’m writing this post from the pantry floor right now.


[Elen checks to see if there is any light leaking under the door.]

The word chickpea is only whispered in our house.


Whispered behind closed doors.

The End!

Skillet Cornbread with Chickpeas.

Good eatin’.

The next time I throw this together I will use a coarser cornmeal, which is my preference.

FYI ~ G-Man had no idea he was eating chickpeas. No idea at all.


Three more weeks to go.

  1. Mmmmm cornbread. You sneaky devil…. slipping in chickpeas to perfectly good cornbread. That’s not nice (but it is a bit hilarious) I can imagine you sitting there watching for his reaction and him looking back you wondering why you’re staring at him while he’s eating.
