CHARRED CHICKPEA POPPERS

i tried a few things with the fresh chickpeas, and my favorite by far was charring them. i didn’t really have high expectations for them, but they were great. they’re even more fun to eat than edamame because the pods are filled mostly with air and they pop as you squeeze the chickpea out.

MANGO SALAD with LEMON VINAIGRETTE

yesterday i found the ripest mangoes in new jersey. usually i’m the WORST at picking softish produce (especially avocados.. cannot do it), but it was like every mango in the bin was perfectly ripe. i had no reason to buy them, so i excercised some restraint and only got two. one of them was missing this morning.

anyway, i threw them in a salad today and it was delish. i usually do balsamic, but i couldn’t cover this cutie in brown nasty. just look at it.
