What you need for warm asparagus and chickpea salad?
The ingredient list is short and the most important here is freshness and the quality of the ingredients. If you can get fresh asparagus and radishes grab them and make this amazing salad!
- Asparagus. Actually I’ve got them from my family’s garden. It is one of the best feelings to know where you food comes from and that is was grown organically. Asparagus is an amazing vegetable, full of flavour and can be used in so many ways.
- Chickpeas. Once again this is probably one of my favourite legumes. I love how versatile and delicious can it be in many dishes. I soak and cook dry chickpeas as I find it easy and cheaper to use. I usually cook the whole pack and freeze in portions so I can use it for many recipes later. You can definitely use canned chickpeas as well.
- Radish. One of the best and first spring produce that is growing in my garden. It reminds me of spring and I love to use it for salads.
- Parsley. Again, one of my favourite herbs at all times and I use it literally in every of my dishes.
- Condiments. I’ve used olive oil to fry asparagus, lemon juice, salt, za’atar and vegan feta cheese which I find so amazing in salads!
