Quick Egg Salad, A Healthyish Brand Recipe

What you’ll need: Serves 2

4 medium boiled eggs

1 can of chickpeas

Handful of Italian parsley  – or cilantro

Chopped jalapeno

Pickled red onions – grab the recipe HERE

1 tablespoon olive oil

Salt and pepper to taste

Lemon – optional

Directions:

  • First, you are going to boil some water and add in 4 eggs. Cook them for 9 minutes so they are medium to hard boiled in the center.
  • Once they are cooked, you will run them under some cold water to help cool them down. Peel the eggs and set them aside.
  • Next, you are going to open a can of chickpeas – rinse them and take off the outer shell. This will make your egg salad more creamy and smooth.
  • Add the chickpeas to a medium sized mixing bowl. (pat them dry with a paper towel to remove any extra water)
  • Next, you will want to chop some Italian parsley, ( you can also use cilantro if you prefer) fresh jalapeno, and Healthyish pickled onion. You can add as much of these ingredients to the mixing bowl as you like. I also like to add in about 1 tablespoon of the rice vinegar mixture from the pickle onion jar. It will help soften the chickpeas and give the egg salad a ton of flavor.
  • Add in the olive oil, salt and pepper and squeeze of lemon. Mix well.
  • Slice down your egg and add it to the salad. Toss everything together and enjoy. *Be sure to refrigerate your leftovers.

Serve and enjoy!
