WHB Giveaway #2: Tell Us Your Favorite Vegetable of 2008 and You Might Win a Fantastic Prize!
More Chances to Win!
If you haven’t already done so, be sure to vote for your favorite herb too. There will be voting for favorite fruit (on Thursday) so come back for that too. Comments on all prize posts will close at 10:00 P.M. (MST – Salt Lake Time) on Friday, October 31, and the winners will be announced in the Anniversary Edition of Weekend Herb Blogging on Sunday evening. (Duplicate entries on the same post will result in all comments from that person being deleted, so please be careful to enter only once on each post.)
Of course I can’t enter to win the prizes, but nothing can stop me from doing a little campaigning, can it? I might be going out on a limb here by endorsing chickpeas (also called garbanzo beans) as my favorite vegetable of 2008, because I know chickpeas are really legumes, and I’m not actually sure if legumes are considered vegetables. But I was so overcome with the love of chickpeas in 2008 that I don’t really care what they’re categorized. Here are three reasons I think you should vote for chickpeas.
Another chickpea recipe that really was a hit around here was this Baked Falafel Patties with Yogurt Tahini Sauce. The recipe was sent to me by a reader (Thanks Jamie!) and when I tried it, I found out a few other food bloggers had also liked the recipe.
Finally, sneaking in another pitch for my favorite herb, another dish that really rocked was this Spicy Sauteed Chickpeas with Beef and Cilantro which came from Mark Bittman. This is simple and delicious, and completely my kind of food.
