Picatta-Style Cashew Chickpea Medallions

Piccata-Style Cashew Chickpea Medallions

I had a discussion with a good friend the other day about how one of my favorite things in the world is sauce. A frequent craving for me is "gravy" or "something with sauce". Picatta-Style Chickpea Medallions {page 266} were a dream come true, because not only did they include a sauce right in the recipe -- they themselves were the perfect vehicle for said sauce {along with the possibility of many others}.

The medallions themselves were mildly flavored, but pleasant, and fairly neutral. I can see them being the perfect accompaniment to many meals, as well as the perfect vehicle for many different sauces. They were very easy to put together, and very quick. It was also handy that they were made out of things I generally have on hand.

The sauce was lemony, light, and delicious, with just the right bite from the capers. If I have one complaint, it's that there wasn't nearly enough sauce for my liking. In the future, I would double or even triple the amount of sauce.

This is another one of those great multipurpose recipes in the book that I can see being useful in a number of applications. It is a good pattern to have on stand by to add some quick and delicious healthy protein to your meal.
