Here's making up for lost time!

You may have lumps and that's ok. 3.Next, transfer the mixture to the pan while it's still hot. Allow this to cool, 30 minutes - an hour. 4.Once cooled, cut up into small fry like pieces. 5. Coat a large skillet with vegetable olive oil. Once heated add in the chickpea fries, cooking a few minutes on each side until golden brown.

Egg-Tastic Egg Salad with Shaved Brussels Sprouts
July 25, 2015 at 6:11 pm 0
photo-146 If you love egg salad like me, but always feel guilty after eating it, this egg salad is for you. My recipe transforms the traditional egg salad, making it light and perfect for summer. Plus it's packed with tons of protein and fiber. I'm pretty much obsessed. Serves 2 Ingredients: 6 hard boiled eggs 3 cups shredded brussels sprouts 1/4 cup mayonnaise A pinch of salt and pepper 1/4 cup chopped red onion: optional A pinch of celery salt: optional Instructions: 1. Dice the hard boiled eggs in a large bowl and combine mayonnaise, salt, pepper. Optional ingredients include celery salt and red onion. The crowd I made this for preferred it without the red onion and celery salt. It tastes great both ways, so use whatever you have in your pantry. 2. I usually prepare the Brussels sprouts ahead of time so they have time to cool down. Once cooled just shred about 3 cups and add into the egg salad mixture. And it's ready to serve. In this recipe I served over crackers, but this salad is great on a sandwich or by itself.
