1 1/2 cups
red bell pepper, diced
1/2 (15 ounce) can
garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
white balsamic vinegar
salt and pepper to taste
I made this for all to bring for lunch as it will keep and not go bad. I did not add the Bacon because the flavor would be bad mixed with the other spices. To keep give it a real protein boost I added garden vegge type of tempeh. That gave the dish the extra punch it needed without the fatty bacon.
I made this exactly like the recipe (except I always add cumin), and the results were light and textural and very complex flavors.
We thought this was really tasty and different. it might be good with a little garlic added in too.
Loved it! Light and refreshing with wonderful curry flavor! Little less vinegar to my taste. Stevia instead of sugar makes this a more healthy option!
I didn't have cuckes or chickpeas so omitted them, but added tomatoes and green pepper. Otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Would be delicious warm or cold, as a main dish or side dish. Definitely don't skip the bacon and caramelized onion step though, that takes it from a 4 star to a 5 star dish!!! Oh, I also added a few artichoke hearts because I had some that needed to be used up. Super dish!!! :-)
Could use more curry powder and think I will add cumin next time. Added jalapeno and cilantro which added a nice flavor.
This was good! I didn't have any cucumber, so I shredded some zucchini in there and also shredded the carrot instead of using diced. I only used 1 tsp. of curry powder and that was plenty for us. The flavors were good, and I think this would also be nice w/ some grilled chicken or shrimp added. Thanks for sharing. :)
