Weather is getting a bit cooler and I need something more “hearty”, especially after a long day of work. So instead of green salad I have been trying out more “filling” salads while trying to stay healthy. Last week I made a Curried Chickpea Salad, which takes less than 10 minutes to make.
Curried Chickpea Salad
-1 can of chickpeas, drained and quickly rinsed
-Cucumbers and tomatoes, chopped and diced
-1 teaspoon of curry powder
– A small pinch of Salt, pepper. turmeric, cumin, zaatar or spices of your choice
– A tablespoon of Greek Yogurt
Simply mix everything together and that’s it!!
Icing on the cake – I bought some falafel balls from Mana ! Fast Slow Food for snack and didn’t have time to eat it. So I crumbled them up and throw them into the salad.
Cook with love,
*** Cooking Tips ***
- Some people found there is a funny taste from the chickpeas from the can. This recipe is a “no cook” recipe as it’s one of those dishes I whip up when I have to prepare a dish in 10 minutes. If time is not an issue cook the chickpeas in boiling water and add salt and pepper and cook for 3 minutes. After that rinse the chickpeas in cold water and let it cool down and dry before you add the seasoning.
- Keeping the chickpeas for a few hours before serving also brings the flavours into the dish. If I am making this dish for a guest dinner I would prepare it ahead of time and take it out 1 hour before serve.
