Ingredients: 2 cups cooked garbanzo beans 1/2 red bell pepper, chopped finely 1/2 cup red onion, chopped finely 1/2 cup cilantro leaves, chopped finely 1 tsp Peri Peri Spice Blend 1/2 tsp ground black pepper 3/4 tsp sea salt 2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice 1 Tbsp. olive oil Feta cheese (optional)
Cooks Note: It is recommended to use fresh garbanzo beans but you can substitute with canned.
Instructions for cooking fresh garbanzo beans:
In a pressure cooker combine 2 cups of water and 1 cup dry garbanzo beans. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to low and then simmer for 3 hours. Beans should be very soft and slightly caramelized at the end of the cooking. Drain remaining liquid and set aside for later use.
In a medium size bowl combine all ingredients and mix well. Adjust seasoning to taste. You may finish the salad with crumbled Feta cheese. Serve as a side dish warm or cold.
