A Public Sphere for Poetry, Nature, and Politics
How do you give some love to legumes when you are as bean-challenged as I am? It’s a real problem for vegans, since beans are one of our key food groups. Here is a recipe that just happened as I started to put together a garbanzo bean salad. We received some pickles from the Dickinson College farm as a Christmas present, and the pickled zucchini were fantastic (the next time we are in Carlisle, PA we’ll get a whole case of it!). The side dish started out very complicated in my head, but after the first two ingredients I had to stop because it could not be improved. Here goes:
Prep-time: 2 minutes 4 servings
2 cans organic chickpeas/garbanzo beans, drained
1 cup thin sliced pickled zucchini or other sweet and sour pickled vegetables and pickle juice
The better the pickles, the greater this recipe, and best of all: no chopping, no heating, no fancy spices, and the salad keeps in the refrigerator for a few days and gets better and better.
