Naan Flatbread with Curried Chickpeas and Edamame

I spent the first part of this week at a conference in Vermont with my lab mate Dave. The food at these things tends to be pretty mediocre, but we did have a delicious meal at American Flatbread in downtown Burlington (which was a super cute area!). Our flatbread was topped with local maple-fennel pork sausage, sundried tomatoes, caramelized onions, cheese, and herbs – yum!  The other foodie highlight was visiting the Ben and Jerry’s Factory on the way home! It was completely packed, but we still had a great time stuffing ourselves with ice cream and going on the factory tour.

When we got home on Wednesday night, I discovered the fridge was pretty bare, but I managed to find some whole wheat naan in the back of the freezer, and decided to make a quick flatbread of my own with an Indian twist. I topped the naan with a curried chickpea mash and edamame. I’ve always enjoyed chickpeas and edamame together and thought this was a very tasty quick and easy dinner!
