I’m cheap, I love good food, I’m not a great cook, and I need to lose some weight, so when I stumbled onto this recipe for chickpea salad–inexpensive, tasty, quick, and healthful–I knew I’d found a winner.
There’s not much to preparing this vegan dish. A can of chickpeas (also known as garbanzo beans) with tomato, red onion, parsley, garlic, olive oil, and lemon juice plus some salt and pepper to taste is the entire ingredient list. I can easily imagine having most, if not all, of these components on hand if I ever needed to throw a quick dish together.
I’ve found a new favorite.
