Ingredients for Spiced chickpea salad

  • 1 teaspoon garam masala
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 x 400g can chickpeas, rinsed, drained
  • 200g green beans, topped, halved
  • 1 x 250g punnet grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1 Lebanese cucumber, ends trimmed, halved, thinly sliced diagonally
  • 4 shallots, white part only, ends trimmed, thinly sliced

Spiced chickpea salad, How to Make

  • Step 1
    Whisk together the garam masala, olive oil and lemon juice in a large bowl. Add the chickpeas and toss to coat.
  • Step 2
    Cook the beans in a saucepan of boiling water for 2-3 minutes or until bright green and tender crisp. Refresh under cold running water. Drain.
  • Step 3
    Add the beans, tomato, cucumber, shallot and coriander to the chickpea mixture and gently toss until just combined. Season with salt and pepper. Serve with yoghurt, if desired.

Variation: To give this Indian salad a Mexican twist, simply replace the garam masala with ground cumin and the chickpeas with canned three-bean mix. Instead of yoghurt, crumble some feta over the salad to serve.
