Chickpeas on Arugula

This is a beautiful salad, if I do say so myself. This IS a beautiful salad!

Marinate chickpeas, elephant garlic, and fresh basil with a little EVOO and lemon juice. A little sea salt, fresh grated pepper, and nutritional yeast rounds out the flavor. Serve on a bed of arugula (High in vitamin C & vitamin A) with plum tomatoes. The peppery taste of the arugula marries with the fresh basil and garlic. YUM!

BTW, nutritional yeast is not the same thing as the yeast that you would use to leaven bread. It is used by vegans as a flavoring because of it's rich cheesy flavor and high content of B vitamins, especially B12.
