Marinated Carrot Salad Topped with Crispy Herb-infused Chickpeas
Simple, yummy, and hearty dinner or lunch salad. Leftovers can be packed for work too.
Ingredients (serves 2)
For the carrots
- 1.5 cup carrots, thinly sliced into circles (I used a mandoline for this)
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
- 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tsp maple syrup or honey
- sea salt, to taste
- black pepper, to taste
For the salad
- 2 cups kale, shredded
- 1.5 cup cooked chickpeas, (½ cup dried = 1.5 cup cooked = 1 15 oz can drained)
- ½ tsp ground cumin powder
- ½ tsp ground coriander seeds
- 1 tsp dried oregano
- 1 tsp paprika powder
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- Mix all marinated carrot ingredients in a small bowl. Marinate for at least 20-30 minutes in the fridge. The longer the better. Overnight is best.
- In a skillet or pan, heat cooking oil over medium heat. Fry cumin, coriander, oregano, paprika powder, and garlic powder for a few seconds or until fragrant. Stir/toss to make sure they don’t burn.
- When fragrant add chickpeas and cook for 5 minutes or until heated through and nicely browned.
