Originally, this appeared in my first little project after I left Thermomix in Australia, the now widely known Dinner Spinner booklet. All dinners, all delicious, and all whipped up in the shortest amount of time possible. I love this recipe as you can literally drive home after a long day at work, and hopefully not even stop at the shop for anything. If you have the basics, you can be eating this in the time that it takes to water the garden and check the kids’ homework. Happy mixing, indeed.

As the years have progressed, Dinner Spinner (the book and the app) have been absorbed by other publications and the Insider Club. This recipe also appears in The Convenient Vegetarian. My third major cookbook...can you believe it? I am on around book 18 now...if you include ebooks. CRAZY...must be the chick peas!
