Chickpea salad–if you can can can
October 21, 2011 Leave a comment
I’m sensitive to legumes but have discovered I tolerate canned chickpeas just fine. Not wanting to dirty up the food processor with tahini-free hummus on a day I have to clean for Little Flowers, I threw this together.
1 can chickpeas, rinsed & drained
1 tsp dried minced onion
1/4 tsp garlic paste
2 small tomatoes, diced (last of the harvest)
1/2 cup-ish crisp steamed cauliflower, chopped
1 tsp dried parsley
Italian dressing to taste
Mix it all together & about 2 hours later…nom. Well, for me. Second Shift of Kid is not impressed. Can’t win ’em all, I guess, especially regarding toddler palates. Anyway, it chilled in a cooler during errands and workout and made a fast, cheap, easy & portable Friday lunch.
