Warm Garbanzo Salad

Place 2 cups garbanzo beans, ½ cup grape tomatoes halved, ½ cup Kalamata olives halved, and ½ cup roasted red peppers sliced, in a pan. On medium heat cook this down for about 12-15 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent scorching.

Combine all ingredients except for the oil in a food processor. Blend on medium speed and slowly drizzle oil in until it all comes together. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Quinoa Tabbouleh

Combine 1 cup quinoa, ½ cup parsley, and 3 oz. dressing in a bowl and mix until combined.

Pickled Shaved Cucumber

In a pot combine 1 cup cider vinegar, 1 cup water, 3 Tbsp. sea salt, 2 bay leaves, 1 Tbsp. whole black peppercorns, and 1 clove garlic. Bring all ingredients to a boil and lower to a simmer for 15 minutes. While it is simmering, shave 1 cucumber as thin as possible into a separate bowl. Strain the liquid over the cucumbers and place in fridge to cool.

Herb Yogurt

In a blender, combine ½ cup Greek yogurt, ¼ cup cucumber chopped, with no seeds, 1 Tbsp. fresh dill, 1 Tbsp. fresh parsley, juice from 1 lemon, ¼ cup spinach, 1 Tbsp. agave nectar, salt and pepper to taste, and blend until smooth.
