Mediterranean Garbanzo Stir fry
I found this recipe on a can of Garbanzo beans. It was great--mixed with rice and served on home made tortillas. Fast--it takes only 15 or 20 minutes to make.
Cooked rice (as much as you desire) White rice is nice
1-2 tab of oil
1 tsp oregano
2-4 cloves of garlic--minced or chopped
1 large zucchini, halved and sliced (or 1 and 1/2 medium zucchini
1/2 cup mushrooms sliced (I used more--a small package)
1 can garbanzo beans
2 tab of FRESH mint--chopped
1-2 tomatoes, chopped
Fresh corn tortillas if desired (I made this earlier in the day)
Cook rice according to directions and set aside. Meanwhile heat oil over medium heat. Stir in oregano and garlic and saute one minute. Add zucchini, mushrooms and beans, stirring well to coat with oil and herbs. Stir fry for ten minutes or until zucchini is crisp and tender. Add fresh mint and tomatoes and stir to heat about 5 more minutes. Serve over cooked rice and if desired spoon into tortillas with salsa.
note there is a good video here on how to make home made tortillas : http://allrecipes.com/recipe/corn-tortillas/detail.aspx I use a big plastic zip lock bag to press the tortillas using a cereal bowl and then a rolling pin --makes a nice round shape. I cook them about 50 secs on one side and 30 secs or so on the other side. If you flip them several times near the end they get a bit puffy if you desire this.
