Chickpea and Eggplant Salad

Sometimes you just need a yummy lunch, which is how this recipe started out. We had a few ingredients on hand, voila. Deliciousness was almost immediate. Sometimes in the test kitchen we are so busy with a specific project that we have to go and get lunch. It is automatically assumed it will be made on site, and mostly it is, but if we have nothing much in the pantry/fridge and we are full throttle into something like macarons or sourdough, there is no lunch.

On such a day as that, we produced this one. Everything was handy, we had to take a pic as why waste a perfectly good lunch after all? Perfect for sharing, vegan, great with some crusty bread and it actually got better on day two!

We know you'll love it too!
