Chickpea a la King and Stoney Creek Metropark

This is another quick and easy recipe. It can be found in Vegan Vittles by Jo Stepaniak. It’s chickpeas, mushrooms, and green onions in a “creamy” sauce. I made it tonight for tomorrow’s lunch with my family. My husband taste tested it tonight for “quality assurance purposes.” It passed. πŸ˜€

I also wanted to post the cute picture of Crow I took the other day. Who is Crow? Well, he was found on the ground at six weeks old with a broken wing. Unfortunately, his wing cannot be fixed so he will not be able to fly. He currently resides at Stoney Creek Metropark. The staff at the Nature Center bring him inside at night so he won’t get attacked by coyotes. They have a pet carrier and a dish of food for him. He also makes noise whenever you come up to see him. It sort of sounds like “Muuhhhh-waaah waahhhh”. It’s really cute. He was also at the park last year.

    Aw, Crow is lovely! I found an injured crow on some railroad tracks when I was 15 or 16; he had fallen somehow and broken his hip. Luckily it was able to be fixed, and he was eventually released back into the wild.

    I just found your blog, and everything looks awesome! I love finding new vegan blogs. πŸ™‚

    First of all, wow, that creamy sauce on the pasta looks SO GOOD. i am such a sucker for “mac n cheez” stuff and with chickpeas and mushrooms, it’d be even better than havin’ a sauce like that on pasta.

    Secondly, i love Crow. What a cool thing for them to do, to allow this bird to live in safety and in peace and with love and attention. I dig that soooooooooo much.

    Thanks very much for sharing this!

    Crow is so adorable! What a nice heart-warming story. Love the saucy chickpeas too…I must check this book out from the library.
