The Chef: Jennifer
The Menu: Chickpea Piccata over a bed of orzo with a marinated kale salad with carrots and mushrooms.
The Goods: I love chickpeas. I think they are the perfect bean. So when I made Isa Chandra Moskowitz's Chickpea Piccata for dinner a few nights ago, I was in love. Instead of arugula, I added in a big pile of spinach. She suggests pouring them over Caulipots (a combination of cauliflower and potatoes), but instead I cooked up some orzo and poured my piccata on top. I just learned from VN Editorial Assistant Hilary Pollack's online article, 11 More Must-Have Vegan iPhone Apps, that Moskowitz has a free vegan cupcakes app. I think it's best if I pretend that doesn't exist.
