This is one of my favourite lunches, because:
1) I love chickpeas
2) Its fresh and healthy
3) I can easily throw it together when I only have 10 minutes to spare

Chickpeas have a low glycemic index and are a good source of protein, fibre, folic acid and manganese. Eating chickpeas regularly can also help lower cholesterol levels.



Chickpea salad


Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 10 minutes
Makes: 2 servings

Ingredients
2 cans chickpeas
1 brown onion, chopped
1 cup frozen corn
2 tomatoes
A handful of kalamata olives
Artichokes
Fresh basil
White wine vinegar
Freshly squeezed lemon juice
Ground cumin
Ground coriander
Pepper

Method
Fry the onion in a pan in a splash of oil. While its cooking, chop up the tomatoes, olives, artichokes and basil and drain the chickpeas.
When the onion is almost cooked, add the corn. If you like a warm salad, throw in the chickpeas and tomatoes for the last 30 seconds or so.
Place all ingredients in a bowl, except the basil. Pour over the lemon juice and vinegar, depending on your taste (we tend to smother the salad with lemon juice). Add the cumin, coriander and pepper (again, to taste) and mix.
Scatter over the basil and its ready to serve.

Other ingredients we sometimes throw in are capsicum (especially delicious when oven roasted), capers, red onion, feta, roast pumpkin, continental parsley and coriander.
