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, bring water to a boil and add in 4 eggs. Cook eggs for 9 minutes so they are medium to hard boiled in the center.
  • Once cooked, you will run the eggs under cold water to help reduce the temperature and stop the cooking process. Once cool, peel the eggs and set them aside.
  • Next, you are going to open a can of chickpeas – rinse them and take off the outer skin. 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 a handful Italian parsley and a few slices of jalapeno add it to the bowl with the chickpeas.
  • Stir in a healthy amount of Healthyish pickled onion.  I 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 the olive oil, salt and pepper and squeeze of lemon. Mix well.
  • Slice your egg in half and add it to the salad. Toss everything together and enjoy.

Serve and enjoy!
