Curried Chickpea and Corn Salad

Serves 3

1 can chickpeas

1 cup corn

3/4 cup bell peeper, chopped

1/4 cup onion, chopped

4 oz. white mushrooms, sliced

1 tsp dill weed

1/2 tsp turmeric

1 tsp madras curry powder

Garnish with fresh cilantro

To make this salad, sauté the chickpeas, corn, bell pepper, onion and mushrooms for 10-15 minutes over medium low heat. Stir frequently to prevent sticking.

After about 5 minutes of sautéing, add in the dill weed, turmeric and curry powder and stir to coat.

When veggies are done (soft and tender), remove from heat and plate garnished with fresh cilantro.

Have this salad on its own, over some sautéed spinach or kale, or scooped on top of a freshly baked sweet potato. Enjoy!
