CHICKPEA SALAD WITH CASHEW CHUTNEY


This week Jessica of Cheese Please is our Food Matters Project host. Jessica chose Mark Bittman's recipe for Chickpea Salad with Cashew Chutney. The recipe is quick and quite tasty. Cashews are toasted with cumin seeds and a dried Thai chili. All that goes in the blender with some garlic to make a finely ground mixture. It's then mixed with chickpeas, fresh mango, lime juice, and cilantro. The yogurt on top tempers the spice and gives it a delightful creaminess. It was the perfect side to a roasted chicken.

You can find the recipe at Jessica's blog here. Our other members take on this recipe can be found here.

The dog food remark cracked me up. It was so much tastier than kibbles! I think your photo looks lovely.

great you enjoyed this Lexi! Glad that someone stuck to the recipe...I'm a bit bad about doing that! Looks delicious (and not like dog food!). =)

Lexi, that comment cracked me up too. But how mean! And not true. It looks like yummy stuff in a yummy sauce to me. And how could that be bad at all? Looks great!

Hey guys...thanks for your comments but I have to admit most of the pictures really did look like a bowl of kibble. We were cracking up at them! Especially the pics I took on a brown cutting board!
