Quick salad with Chickpeas & Parsley

Chickpea salad

Dealing with chickpeas is never too complicated, most of the times quick and always, but always a delicious experience. You can never fail with chickpeas as they pair well with almost everything and they make a light and healthy salad (or side dish).I always have some extra chickpeas can somewhere stored at home and I resort to it whenever I crave for some healthy hearty salad I can prepare in 5 minutes. It’s either the Pho Bo bowl or the chickpea one πŸ˜€

Since root vegetables are now in the spotlight at the farmer’s market, I used carrots and celeriac. And I had bought some fresh organic delicious parsley and I used a lot of it.

Celeriac, carrot

You can serve this salad as it is, with flat bread or rye crackers. Or with a sunny side up egg and a dollop of Greek yoghurt.
