Bread and jam. Bacon, lettuce and tomato. Peanut butter and a drizzle of chocolate sauce on a spoon (right?). You gotta love a perfect food pairing. Along those lines, a new love triangle recently grabbed our attention: spicy broccoli rabe mixed with starchy chickpeas and topped with a dollop of creamy fresh ricotta. It’s a vegetarian meal, but that didn’t stop our meat-loving friends from asking for seconds.
While this recipe calls for canned chickpeas, you can also opt to cook them yourself for more flavorful results. Soak the chickpeas in cool water for up to two days. Transfer them to a large pot and cover with water by 1 inch. Bring to a simmer and cook, covered, until the chickpeas are tender, 45 minutes to 1 hour.
