novapsyche: Sailor Moon rising into bright beams (Default)
[personal profile] netmouse & [profile] flinx, in their expansive generosity, gave me an immersion blender for Christmas. (When I opened the wrapping paper & read the box, I squealed like a child.) She knew how much I'd been wanting one (though I swear I merely mentioned that in an aside, maybe once). I was excited to try new cooking items, but having never used such an appliance, I had somewhat of a dearth of ideas.

This week, I realized that I had a bunch of spinach I'd purchased last week, so I needed to do something with it STAT. I decided to make a spinach & chickpea puree to pair with Moroccan chicken & jasmine rice.

The puree is not the most attractive color in the world. However, I can say that I've never enjoyed spinach quite so much. I will definitely make this again.

I adapted my dish from this recipe. I omitted the celery, bouquet garni, cornstarch & yogurt; I also put the rice on the side. Also, as I was cooking just for myself & so was using only one chicken breast, I reduced this recipe down pretty much in half (this meant that all of the spices used [aside from salt] were pinches or dashes).

I'm dancing in my seat as I eat.
