Starting the year right - pasta, garbanzo beans salad

Pasta, garbanzo beans salad

The end of the year went by quickly, the fall was busy with some travel.

I was in Boston in October and right across from the hotel was Eatly. So before I had to leave, I did a quick tour of the store and picked up different kinds of pasta.

I used one of them to make a pasta salad in the new year. It says on the packet that it is a Sardinian pasta . The shape and size was perfect for the salad, the kids called it a worm pasta and Aswin called it larvae pasta.

Despite the name challenge, we all enjoyed it. Aswin and I ate the pasta salad which is really easy to put together. The kids ate a deconstructed version of the same salad - veggies, garbanzo beans and pasta separate.

How about you? Hope your New Year is starting on a good note.

Ingredients:
1 cup small pasta - boiled
1 cup boiled garbanzo salad
1/2 cup chopped cucumber
1/2 cup chopped avocado
1/4 cup chopped red pepper
1/4 cup chopped carrots

For the dressing:

bunch or cilantro and parsley - chopped
1/4 tspoon smoked paprika powder
1/4 tspoon roasted cumin seed powder
1/4 tspoon fresh ground black pepper powder
1 tbspoon lime/lemon juice
1 tbspoon oliveoil
salt to taste

Method:
Pasta, garbanzo beans salad
The ingredients list may sound long, but it really depends on what you have at home. You can always substitute one vegetable or ingredient for another.

I made it as a warm  salad (especially with the cold weather) by freshly boiling the pasta and garbanzo beans and mixing the vegetable in the still warm mix.

I like to add the mix all the dressing ingredients separately, but you can also add them directly in the salad mix.

Mix it serve immediately.Enjoy!
