Samp&Beans/Chickpeas with a lot of twist


As it goes, my eyes see a recipe and my brain starts thinking what to serve with it, which then evolves into something else and ultimately it ends up in the shop buying ingredients for a week’s worth of meals. Today the brain said “you need chickpeas” with Moroccan meatballs and when in the shop I saw good old fashioned stamp mielies (samp) which I haven’t had in years and it all ended up in this dish.

I served it with the Moroccan Meatballs from the recipe book Drizzle & Dip by Samantha Linsell  page 137 and it is utterly delicious( and beautiful of course).

Watermelon on the side goes well with the dish.
