Micro Steamed Green Beans and Garbanzos


Serves: One


     2 cups frozen green beans (8 ounces, actually I just fill a big soup bowl)

     ½ cup (or more) canned garbanzo beans, rinsed with hot water (to warm them) and drained

     Drizzle of olive oil

     Coarse salt to taste. (Today I decided to try a new flavor a reader had suggested, Garam Masala.  I used 1/8 of a teaspoon and I liked it.)


     Place all ingredients except the garbanzo beans in a large soup bowl and cover with a silicone lid and microware for 5 minutes.  Remove from microwave, add the garbanzos, and then stir. Be careful because it will be hot. How simple is that!  No, you don’t need to add water. Surprisingly, quite a bit of water accumulates on the bottom.


So if you are starving and you don’t have anything to eat in the house, try this!  I would love to hear what you think.
