Simple & Yummy Chickpea Salad

Ingredients:

1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed, boiled until soft
1 cup chopped carrots, boiled until tender
1 cup chopped cucumber (i like the seedless kind)
1 tsp whole cumin seeds
1 tsp whole corriander seeds
1 tsp whole black mustard seeds
3 tbsp olive oil
salt & pepper to taste
Directions: 
  • Place chopped cucumber in a mixing bowl.
  • In a medium pot bring 4 cups (or so) of water to a boil. Add the chickpeas & carrots. I like to add the peeled carrots whole and then cut them after when they are tender. :) Drain, then add the chickpeas & chopped carrots to the mixing bowl and set aside.
  • In a small frying pan warm 3 tbsp of olive on medium-high heat, then add the spices, they should “snap” and begin to brown. When they start to brown remove from heat and add to the mixing bowl. Add salt & pepper to taste and then give a light toss.
  • Combine with rice for a heartier meal, or just eat right away for a light healthy snack! I think some fresh herbs, and squeeze of fresh lemon juice would be a nice addition as well.
