Garbanzo Beans with Olive Oil and Truffle Salt

vegetarian, vegan, protein, truffle-salt

This salad takes literally minutes to prepare.  The only caveat is that truffle salt is the real star here – visit your favorite gourmet grocery store and ask if they have truffle salt in bulk or in grocery.  It’s a pricey ingredient, but goes a long way and well worth the cost. Be sure to store the salt, and all spices, in a glass jar with a tight fitting lid.

Prepare the salad at least 30 minutes in advance so the truffle can melt into the olive oil.  Serve at room temperature or slightly warm.

Serves 4 as a side salad or appetizer

Ingredients: 

1 15oz can garbanzo beans (preferably organic, rinsed and drained)
1 tablespoon good quality olive oil (the greener the better)
1/2 teaspoon truffle salt
1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped

Directions:

1) Combine garbanzo beans, olive oil and truffle salt.  Let marinate for 30+ minutes.

2) Let come to room temperature, add parsley and serve.
