Meatless Tuesday (in my case)

One of my fellow bloggers,Dawn, of Dawn's Garden Life, (who I think has the neatest blog, about her homegrown vegies, and meatless recipes), had a recipe I just had to try! She posted it on Monday, and I made it tonight,with one variation. She called it Garbanzos and Rappini Medley. Hers called for Rappini or Broccoli Rabe, but I used spinach. It was so delicious I just had to tell everyone about it. The ingredients are Broccoli Rabe (or spinach as in my case), fresh mushrooms, canned chick peas (or garbanzo beans), and a tub of crumbled gorganzola or blue cheese (or whatever kind of cheese you like). All done in a skillet. My kind of meal!!!The neat part is how she kinda of browned the chick peas first in a little oil. It gave them a much nicer taste, I thought.It only takes a minute and then you just add the other ingredients (except cheese, which you wait till last to add). I made some couscous to go with it, just like Dawn did. I gave this meal a 12 on a 0-10 scale! My family really LOVED it. Oh, I did add some salt and Herbs de Province to it too. You can add any seasonings you like. Thanks Dawn!!!Please check out her recipe and photos of her meal HERE
The white stuff was the cheese when I added it. I just covered the skillet and let it melt!YUM!
Please take no notice of the condition of my cast iton skillet. I need to throw it in the fire again to get it cleaned up! Heeheehee.

Man that looks good girl, but alas I can't eat cheese! Isn't that the pits! Hey you would be proud of me. I am growing 4 tomato plants in a horse trough! They are getting really big and one of them already has 7 tomatoes on it! Woohoo!

The recipe looks and sounds wonderful, Julie. And that iron skillet looks beautiful because it's well-used. I bet you hardly need any oil for it because it's so well-seasoned.
