A bright, lively and very simple garbanzo cucumber salad that will make your whole body smile.
I’m not normally a fan of cucumbers but I polished off a second helping of this!
We ate it with sauteed sesame spinach and steamed rice.
- 1 can or 1 1/2 cups of garbanzo beans / chick peas
- 1 cucumber, diced
- 1 lemon, squeezed
- 1/4 tsp paprika
- 1 sprig mint or rosemary, leaves minced
- Salt and pepper to taste
In a medium bowl, mix the garbanzo beans and diced cucumber.
Add the lemon juice, paprika, mint/rosemary, salt and pepper. Stir to combine.
And that’s it! Serve with any side dishes, like sauteed sesame spinach and rice.
“Hope” is the thing with feathers –
That perches in the soul –
And sings the tune without the words –
And never stops –
at all –
And sweetest –
in the Gale –
is heard –
And sore must be the storm –
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm –
I’ve heard it in the chillest land –
And on the strangest Sea –
It asked a crumb –
– Emily Dickinson
