Easy Peasy Garbanzo Salad

garbanzo_saladGone are the days when I used to enjoy cooking only because I loved to try out new dishes, or loved to help out my mom in her kitchen.  Years later, with a family of my own, cooking has become mandatory which sometimes takes away the pleasure from the art. At such times, I try to come up with something simple, quick, delicious, yet healthy. Here’s one such dish that is relished mostly by my daughter and friends. I love it too.

2 cans               garbanzo beans, drained (each can is 15oz. or 425 gms.)

1 big                   tomato, chopped fine

1/2                     red onion, chopped fine

1                         thai or serrano chilli  pepper, chopped fine (optional)

To taste            salt

To taste           pepper

1/2                    lime (juicy)

a few sprigs    cilantro leaves, washed and chopped fine

Method: In a serving bowl, mix together all ingredients except salt, pepper, lime juice and cilantro. Make sure not to break the beans and tomatoes.  Refrigerate until you are ready to serve.

Add salt, pepper,lime juice and cilantro and mix well just before serving. Garnish with chopped cilantro.

Note: If you can’t handle hot peppers and Thai peppers can be omitted and Serrano pepper can be deseeded . If you like the heat of chilli peppers, you can increase the numbers of peppers as per your taste. Warning though – Thai peppers are hot.



About anointedartist

I am a free-spirited person who enjoys the little things in life as much as the big ones that cross my path. As wife and mother of two wonderful kids, I have learned to take into stride the joys and pains of nurturing my family with laughter and tears. From being a stay-at-home mom for a long time, I have now extended my arms into the community to envelope kids with special needs and work with them. My soul takes delight in creating pieces of art in the form of pottery, card-making, crafting, knitting, crocheting, and list goes on. My long-standing wish to learn pottery-making took form and I have made quite a few interesting projects and love them. I also do prophetic arts (painting) along with my husband at our church during worship now and then and enjoy it. I believe that most of my inspirations come for my Creator and I am just being instrumental in revealing it to others. I feel honored to be used as His anointed vessel to display the creativity He has invested in me.
