Warm brussels sprout & chickpea salad

Trying to eat healthy can get boring after a while.  Especially when you are buying your food at Costco in 3-lbs bags.  For this recipe we had some Brussels sprouts left over after our grilling experiment.

Ingredients:
2 tbsp rendered bacon fat (you can use butter if you must)
1 lb Brussels sprouts, thinly sliced
1 can (15 oz) chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1 tbsp minced garlic
freshly grated Parmesan for topping
Salt and freshly ground pepper

Directions:
Heat a large skillet oven medium heat and add bacon fat or butter.
Add Brussels with a pinch of salt, stirring to coat, then cooking for another 5 minutes or until desired tenderness.
Add chickpeas and stir and let sit for 5-6 minutes until chickpeas are warm.
Serve warm with grated Parmesan on top.

Stay hungry my friend!
