Thai Green Curry Chickpea Salad

Hey there! How are you doing?

It’s hard to find a light vegan salad dressing since most are cream or mayo based. Adding a dollop of store brought dressing can also easily turn your healthy salad into something not-so-healthy. Eating a plain salad however might not be the tastiest way to get your greens in, that’s why we came up with the dressing in the first place, right?

Trying to figure out a way to add extra taste to my big bowl of salad, I came up with this Thai Green Curry Chickpea Salad dressing. Combining two of my favorites: chickpeas and green curry paste, this dressing will take your everyday salad to a whole different level. Natural yogurt makes it creamy, yet light and sunflower seeds add a crunchy factor. The preparation will only take you two minutes. I think it’s time to level-up your salad game!

I serve mine atop bed of greens with brown rice, baked sweet potato, sweet corn, avocado and sweet chili sauce. Hope you love it too!

Here are the instructions, happy cooking!

Thai Green Curry Chickpea Salad
(makes 3-4 servings)

250g canned chickpeas
4 tbsp natural non-dairy yogurt, e.g. oat or soy based
3 tsp thai green curry paste
a big handful of sunflower seeds

Rinse the chickpeas with cold water. Place into a blender/food processor with all the other ingredients. Blend until smooth and even or pulse just a couple of times to leave a bit more structure. Serve with lots of fresh and/or cooked veggies, enjoy!

Thank you for reading, have a beautiful week! 🙂
