I spent all weekend preparing my lovely chickpeas so that I could make some delicious dishes out of them.
After I soaked them for 24 hours from Friday night, I boiled them for 3 hours on Saturday. Then I made some humus, and stored the rest in a tupperware in the refrigerator.
Today I made a salad for lunch which was delicious, refreshing and filling.
Sliced Cucmber (cut in quarters)
Diced Boiled Eggs
Chives (I use a scissor to cut them)
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Coarse Sea Salt
Freshly Ground Pepper (preferably red, white, black, green)
1/3 Lemon Juice
Dash of Cumin
Dash of Chili
Just mix all of this and serve with toast!
It's nutritious and pretty filling.
