Today I will be using their Roasted Garlic Base, for one of my most favorite dishes: Chickpeas With Baby Spinach. I make this every week. It is healthy, delicious and filling. 

This recipe is ready in only 15 or 20 minutes (if you use cooked chickpeas, of course) and is super easy to make. I make it almost every week, it’s one of my all time favorite chickpea recipes.

You can use canned chickpeas, but they have preservatives and additives. I prefer to cook them in boiling water for one or two hours or until they’re soft. You should soak the chickpeas overnight, the longer you let it soak before cooking, the quicker they will cook.

Better Than Bouillon can be used to make a broth or as a marinade to add flavor. I have been incorporating it into my recipes lately I am am loving the results. Just yesterday I stir friend the veggies in a Seasoned Vegetable Base, and the result was delicious. This is an alternative to canned broths that expire quickly. I am looking forward to experimenting more with these bases in the coming weeks.
