It’s Friday!!!!! Can I get a big fat Hooray?
Come on guy’s that’s all??? You can do way better! Let’s try again together!
Yeah, that was great!
And as it’s Friday, it’s of course recipe day! Today I’ll treat you to a brand new recipe of mine. It’s fresh and green, spicy, crunchy and creamy and well pretty delicious obviously 😉
This recipe also has a little background story I don’t want to keep from you. Imagine a hot and cloudless NY summer day around noon. Tiny Juli, age 29 and her not so patient anymore husband walk down the streets in desperate need of food! Not any food obviously but something healthy, satisfying and delicious. Okay okay we were hunting down a Whole Foods. After ages we finally found one. WE hit the salad bar, hoarded salad worth an arm and a leg, raced to Central Park sat down and just started shoving the food down. IN the end there was left some leafy greens, some kale, hummus, chickpeas and a falafel. OH MY GOSH!!! This was so damn delicious! I love Chickpeas! I love humus, I love Falafel….TRIPLE CHICKPEA PERFECTION!!! So this recipe idea was born. Hope you enjoy!
Crunchy & Creamy Triple Chickpea Salad
- Leafy green salad
- 1/2 can of chickpeas
- A giant tablespoon of hummus – as the hummus is a substiture for the dressing you can also add some water to make it a bit smoother
- A batch of Falafel – add some more spices, this recipe can take it. I added an extra tsp of sambal
Make it from scratch with this Hummus
And that Falafel recipe
And now yourr only other task is to arrange the triple chickpea options nicely on the greens and then you can sit down and dig in!
And as this is clears a bit strange but oh so good I am linking up with Laura today! Enjoy the other #strangebutgood recipes 😀
So for today I only have a bit reading to do. Reading in my favorite office of course. I really need to speed up a bit now as in only 5 weeks I am starting to interview the last round and those interviews are going to be the most important for my thesis. I am going to talk to ask my Mentees about the Mentoring experience and how it helped or failed to help with their career planning. The outcome will clearliy influence the whole tenor of my research work. So fingers crossed I find some interesting patterns to analyze. But they can only give answers to questions I ask so I am high speed in the process of constructing my set of questions. That’s by far my favorite part of my PhD work, preparing and conducting the data collection.
So what are you up to today? Any weekend plans that will make me envious?
Have a nice Friday lovelies!
Wow, tolle Rezeptidee. Ich liebe Kichererbsen…
