    Chickpea Salad

    Garbanzo or chickpea is a legume that is high in protein and a good source of iron. The first time I ate it I fell in love with its yummy taste, very creamy and nutty. You can use chickpea in different dishes but for now enjoy this delicious and nutritious salad :-). Below are the basic ingredients but you can add more when you serve it, like sesame seeds and basil leaves.

    250 grams chick pea
    1 cup cherry tomato
    1/2 cup black seedless olives
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    2 tablespoons lime or lemon juice
    salt and pepper to taste

    1. Cook the chick pea until tender ( I pressure cooked it for 20 minutes) if pressure cooker is not available, just use a pot and boil until done.
    2. When tender, drain and put in a mixing bowl.
    3. Add the cherry tomatoes, olives, olive oil,  salt and pepper then mix well.
    4. Serve with love and do not forget to smile :-) .
