Sautéed Zucchini & Chickpeas

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by bluemoon downunder

A simple recipe which I found in the June 2002 issue of the 'Australian Good Taste' magazine, in a bring-a-dish for eight menu plan. Obviously, the recipe can be scaled down. The recipe specifies that it can be made "up to an hour before serving", but I cannot see why it couldn't be made further ahead than that. When I make this, I'll be adding chopped onions and garlic in step two, and some lemon juice and dried thyme, probably when adding the chickpeas in step three.

Very good! I also thinly sliced my zucchini. This is very good and I will make it again. Made for Gimme 5 tag.
