Chickpeas are so nutritious and prepared well they are also really delicious. I much prefer the taste of the dried as it’s a more nutty flavour, but tinned work just the same.
1 1/2 cups dried chickpeas, soaked in cold water over night
1/2 red onion, diced
1/2 cucumber, diced
12 cherry tomatoes, halved
1/4 c fresh mint leaves, finely chopped
30 g feta cheese, crumbled
1 tbspn fresh parsley, finely chopped
3 tbspn fresh lemon juice
2 tbspn olives, pitted and diced
1 tbspn Dijon mustard
1 tbspn olive oil
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
salt and freshly ground black pepper
- Drain the chickpeas then combine with the onion, cucumber, mint, feta and parsley.
- Whisk together lemon juice, olives, mustard, oil, and garlic.
- Pour dressing on top of the chickpea mixture and stir gently until combined.
- Season with salt and pepper to taste.
