The giveaway extravaganza is not over – not even close so don’t worry. But I thought I’d take a minute real quick to share a recipe since it’s been a while.
I love chickpeas and am always trying to come up with a new recipe or way to eat them.. you can roast them, grind the dried beans into a flour to bake with, you can mash them into hummus, you can add them to salads, you can mash them up and add them into cookies … just lots of ways to use beans.
The veggies were cut up ahead of time, so it took no time at all to whip this together, and I just think all the flavors and textures work really well.
Colorful Chickpea Salsa
1 Can of drained and rinsed chickpeas
1 tomato, diced
1 C total of finely diced peppers/celery/onion (I had yellow and red peppers, celery, and sweet onions), or as much/little as you want
For the dressing, mix together:
2 T Saucy Mama’s Lemon Tarragon mustard (it’s amazing! full review of this company shortly)
2 T honey
2 tsp Sailor’s Swagger Pineapple hot sauce
3 T apple cider vinegar
2 T water or oil
spices (a few good shakes of each): Savory, Black Pepper, Sea Salt, Sage, Parsley, Thyme, and Cumin
Mix the dressing ingredients together and pour over veggies/beans. Allow to chill if desired. This coul be a side dish (would serve about 4) or a main dish (serve about 2)
I also wanted to let you know about a little sale happening over at my shop! It’s back-to-school time, but I want everyone to do some back-to-school shopping not just students (I’ve been out of school for quite a number of years now, I’m not a teacher…and yet something about the back-to-school flyers/commercials/sales just makes me want to get a binder, paper, and pens and pretend like I’m in 4th grade again). So I’m offering 5% off with the code BACK2SCHL through Sept. 10th.
I’ve already come up with some Christmas/winter scents and by the middle of next month should have the new Fall scents listed, so that’s a bit exciting for me.
Hope everyone has a great weekend! I’ll be back on Monday for yet another giveaway and to annonce the winner of the Vegan Conscious Box! (one day left to enter)
