Chickpea Peach Salad with Ginger


Chickpea Peach Salad
1 can Chickpeas
6 big Tomatoes
3 Peaches
1/2 bunch Cilantro
Ginger Dressing
2 tbsp Gluten free Ponzu Sauce It is not that easy finding gluten free Ponzu Sauce. If you can not find it, use 1 1/2 tbsp Tamari and 1/2 tbsp Lime Juice. It is not the same but still yummy.
2 inch Ginger peeled and grated
1 tbsp Sesame Oil
2 tbsp Grape seed oil
Sea Salt For seasoning
Black Pepper For seasoning


Chickpea Peach Salad
Drain the chickpeas. I like using the aquafaba for things like my almost healthy brownies. Put the chickpeas in a bowl
Wash the peaches, get the pit out and cut in 1/2 inch cubes, add to the chickpeas.
Wash the tomatoes, cut in half and with a spoon or finger take the seeds and liquid out. Cut the tomatoes the same size as your peaches and then add them to the bowl as well.
Wash you cilantro, only take the leaves, chop them a bit and add as well.
Ginger Dressing
Mix all ingredients for the Ginger Dressing, easiest in the blender, add to the bowl and let it sit for around 20 minutes before serving.


While experimenting with aquafaba for some new dessert creations I also ended with lots of chickpeas. The question for those chickpeas was to come up with some new fun ideas besides homemade Hummus or Buddha Bowls. Fortunately chickpeas are not only extremely healthy but also versatile. Their nutty taste and the abundance of fiber makes them great ingredient for many dishes, also filling summer salads. This Chickpea Peach Salad with Ginger Dressing has nice flavors of peach, lemon and ginger and works really well with some Quinoa on the side.
