Chic Pea Mash

Submitted by Lisa

I saw something similar to this being made on www.foodnetwork.com.  This is my own version of it.  The kids and my husband were not quite sure they wanted me to mess with the potatoes, but when they tried it they ate all of it...and loved it!  I did too.  I have a child who does not like to eat meat, so I try to squeeze in protein where ever I can!

4 medium potatoes, cubed
2 tablespoons canola oil 
1 medium yellow onion, diced
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon salt
Chopped chives
·         1 (12 ounce) can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1.     Place potatoes in a saucepan, cover with water, and bring to a boil over high heat; simmer until the potatoes are tender. Drain, and set aside.
2.     Warm oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in onion and garlic, and cook until the onions are soft and translucent. Stir in ginger, cumin, and salt. Cook for 1 or 2 minutes, stirring. Pour in chickpeas. Stir in potatoes. Cook together for a few minutes roughly mashing them together.  When done, add the chives and serve along with a meat and veggie course.
