As a follow up to this week’s post, Chickpeas: This Month’s Super Food, I am posting a protein packed salad recipe that will leave you feeling full for hours!
2 Cups of arugula
1/2 onion, thinly sliced or chopped
1 TBSP of soy or turkey bacon, crumbled
2 TBSPs of crumbled feta cheese ( optional, use dairy free cheese if you’re vegan)
1 cup of sliced cherry tomatoes
1/2 cup of chopped cucumber
1/2 cup of chopped avocado
1/4 cup of shredded carrots
2 ( HEAPING!) TBSPs of hummus made from chickpeas
Olive Oil and Balsamic dressing to taste
After cleaning and prepping the vegetables and arugula, place them in a bowl and toss. Add the crumbled soy bacon and feta cheese on top. Then, add the hummus for the final touch. Hummus serves as my dressing. But for those who want to use olive oil and balsamic dressing, use just a bit for taste. Enjoy!
