Roasted zucchini salad with chickpeas and herbs

עודכן: 16 ביוני 2021



Between all the pastas, sugar, butter and pastries I cook, bake and eat, I feel I have to balance it with some fresh salad!

And if I'm going to have a salad - I wanna make it interesting, fun and refreshing.

I roasted some zucchini slices, and combined it with cooked chickpeas, lots of fresh herbs, squeezed lemon, a touch of chili and lots of olive oil. Delicious delicious delicious. And along with some Labane cheese(strained yogurt) and sliced ​​almonds.. so good!

Ingredients:

  • 2 large zucchini

  • A cup and a half of soaked and boiled chickpeas

  • A handful of mint leaves

  • A handful of coriander

  • 1 small red onion

  • 2-3 stalks of scallions

  • 2 tablespoons sliced ​​almonds

  • Half a teaspoon of chili flakes / chopped fresh chili

  • 2 tablespoons Labane cheese(strained yogurt) - can also be replaced with feta cheese or sour cream

  • 2 cloves garlic

  • One squeezed lemon

  • Salt

  • Black pepper

  • Olive oil

Preparation:

  • Finely chop a small portion of the coriander, u should have something like 2-3 tablespoons of chopped coriander. Mix with 3 tablespoons of olive oil, one clove of crushed garlic and a pinch of salt. We will use this oil for serving.

  • Heat a little bit of olive oil in a pan with one clove of garlic, black pepper and salt.

  • Slice the zucchini into strips that are not too thick, you can also cut the strips to a smaller size or leave it as is.

  • Roast the zucchini slices on the pan that has been heated with olive oil. One or two minutes on each side. It is recommended that the zucchini remain a little bit crispy and too cooked. Remove and place the zucchini on absorbent paper to soak up some of the oil.

  • Chop the mint leaves without the stems and the coriander with the stems.

  • Cut the red onion and scallions into thin strips.

  • Once the roasted zucchini strips have cooled, mix together with the chickpeas, onion and chopped herbs, one tablespoon of sliced ​​almonds, lemon juice, chili, a tablespoon of olive oil, salt and black pepper.

  • Mix it well!

  • To serve - spread two tablespoons of Labne on a flat plate, add the salad, Sprinkle some more sliced ​​almonds on top and drizzle a bit of the coriander oil we prepared in advance.


Enjoy! :)
