My copy of Oh She Glows is so very well worn. It is one of my personal favorite cookbooks. I have quite a few recipes that are made over and over again including this chickpea salad. I LOVE it. Even better my kids do too. It is the perfect item to stuff into a wrap with some greens or sprouts and take on a picnic. My kids love going to the park and the splash pad in the summer and taking a picnic with us. After a quick lunch they are right back to playing. The little one asked several times over the winter (snow and all) when we could have a picnic at the park on the ground, she was not very impressed with indoor picnics. I shared this recipe with a friend after she learned how much my family enjoyed it. She made it and her picky six year old not only loved it but asks for it to be made by name! This is a winning combination that is perfect with for the upcoming picnic days, although it is equally delicious in the middle of winter for an indoor picnic.
I am so excited that Angela’s second book will be released this fall. I pre-ordered it as soon as it was available. I know that it will be packed with delicious recipes like her first book. A few of our favorites from her first book are the glo bars, granola clusters, chia donuts, festive kale salad, salt and vinegar roasted chickpeas. There are so many more but I can’t list her entire book.
