Mill City Cooks - Curried Chick Peas with Autumn Vegetables 

In conjunction with Hunger Solutions Day at the September 10 Market, Chef Jenny Breen's Mill City Cooks demo was Cooking on a SNAP Budget.  She provided suggestions on how to economically create meals that are both nutritious and tasty. The Curried Chick Peas with Autumn Vegetables recipe she prepared costs less that $3 per serving.

Jenny explained to the audience that the term curry does not mean the orange powder in a spice jar marked curry.  Rather, it's a sauce, possibly creamy, spicy or tomato based, depending on the region of origin.
