I thought this was a creative little side salad idea from Hello Fresh. It actually came out super tasty.
I can’t give you the whole recipe here, but just so you get the idea:
You start out by sauteeing the chopped onion and zucchini in olive oil, because they take the longest to cook:
Then you stir in garlic, vegetable stock, and paprika:
Before ultimately adding the chickpeas and chopped arugula:
I was really impressed by this dish; the flavors really came together.
It was served a side dish to the Spanish-style cod, which was very easy to make– you pop it in the oven at 500 degrees for about 8 minutes.
My only real criticism of Hello Fresh, after having tried it a few times, is that the meals just don’t end up being very filling. After eating a serving of this, I was hungry again within about two hours.
However, I just wanted to remember this dish because the favors came together really well, and it has the potential to really complement a larger dish. If I was going to make it gain, I think I would try to mix in some couscous or something, along with some extra olive oil, to bulk it up.
So, that is my somewhat mixed review, but rest assured– this salad itself was incredibly tasty!
