Delicious Zucchini Smoked Salmon Slice with Indian Spiced Chickpea Salad


The best thing about blog hopping is that you get the most wide range of ideas for meals. I try to cook/bake something new or re-invented every week-just because we like to experiment with our food!

Well, this delicious recipe was from Petrina who obtained it from Exclusively Food. What I love about this recipe is how versatile it is and deliciously simple!

I made quite a few changes to the recipe-omitting that 1/4 cup of oil and adding about 3-4 tablespoons of milk. It was still moist and very tasty!

And the chickpea salad? One of our favourite hangout breakie place is in East Vic Park called Food for me. It's wholesome yet simple food got us straight away. Sometimes, all you want is great service, good coffee and down to earth healthy food. Their chickpea was Moroccan but due to the lack of spices I used a mixture of cumin and curry instead and it turned out very addictive! What I might do next time is to add finely chopped red onion for that added crunch.

Oh, yum. Both of those sound fantastic. And I am all about the chickpea - it's my new-found friend after being ignored for so many years.

I'm going to copy these down.

Great photos.
