    I like putting them in a salad with tomatos, lettuce, cucumber and a honey mustard dressing (olive oil, lemon, honey, grain mustard and salt and pepper to taste).

    I also like to make a chicken dish, where you marinate the chicken in lime and sweet chilli sauce with some olive oil, then cook with tomatos and chick peas. Mmmm. Haven't done that in ages.

    Wasabi Chickpeas

    These zesty chickpeas satisfy a craving for a savoury chip like snack. Put them out in bowls for a party or have some on hand for an afternoon snack.

    2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
    2 Tablespoons Rice Vinegar
    2 Tablespoons Wasabi Powder
    1 Tablespoon Dry Mustard
    1/2 teaspoon Sesame Oil
    1/2 teaspoon Each salt and freshly ground pepper
    2 Cans Chickpeas, drained and rinsed

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees Faranheit. In a large bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, wasabi powder, mustard, sesame oil, salt and pepper. Stir in Chickpeas, tossing to coat well. Spread mixture in single layer on parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until golden.

    Makes about 3 cups. Store in airtight container up to 3 days.
