    Inspired by a local restaurant, I’ve adapted Chickpeas and Oyster Mushrooms with White Truffle Oil to be just as decadent and flavorful, but with simpler ingredients.

    A couple of things to keep in mind when making this delicious chickpea recipe:

    1. Use cast iron, it will suck up excess liquid from the mushrooms, preventing you from ending up with chickpea soup.

    2. Lemon juice and white truffle oil are too be added last to prevent them from cooking off and allowing them to retain their own robust flavors, complementing each other nicely.

    3. Oyster mushrooms have a lot of crevices. I rinse them and then blot with a paper towel to prevent them from getting mushy. They also have fun shapes and textures, adding sophistication to your meal. Now you are ready to go!

    Test canned chickpeas before you start using them. I find that my store brand are undercooked and dry, while more mainstream brands are tender and creamy. It may not be that you don’t care for chickpeas, maybe you just haven’t been eating the good ones!

    What are Chickpeas? Well first of all, the chickpea is a legume that is part of the plant family, faboideae. They are extremely nutritious, which leads me to tell you some of the benefits of chickpeas. Studies show that chickpeas can help with type 1 and type 2 diabetes.
    Other areas they can help in are bone health, blood pressure, heart health, cholesterol, and inflammation. And that is only naming some of the benefits!
