A quick fridge supper – roasted spiced chickpeas and tomatoes

IMG_4767Last night in the fridge I found leftover canned chickpeas, squashy vine tomotoes on their last legs, fresh coriander and lime and the mixed Greek yogurt and mango chutney I served with my pheasant tikka recipe on Saturday. They became a really tasty easy supper like this:

Roasted spiced chickpeas and tomatoes with lime


For two, I mixed 250 – 300g (a drained 400g can) of cooked chickpeas with 2 banana shallots cut into wedges and added 1 tbsp Pure Kent rapeseed oil, two teaspoons each of ground cumin and ground coriander and salt and pepper. I spread this over the base of a shallow roasting tin and cooked for 15 minutes in the oven at 220C fan oven 190C gas mark 7, stirring once or twice until golden. I cut 4 large vine tomatoes into wedges and mixed them with a seeded and chopped red chilli and 2 chopped cloves garlic and added them to the roasting tin for a further 20 – 25 minutes until they were softened and the whole thing smelt wonderful. To serve, I squeezed over the juice of a lime, spooned over 3 or 4 tablespoons of mixed Greek yogurt and mango chutney and scattered with chopped fresh coriander. We mopped it up with warmed naan bread and it was heavenly!
