We’re having pizza!!! sang The Monkey’s to Mr Chocolate as he closed the front door behind him.
Two grinning boys launched themselves at their father…pizza!
Mr Chocolate looked happy too as he scanned the table tops with their proving doughs. Although, you’re not having pizza Dada, I think you’re having salad, said a sombre looking Monkey Boy. His face fell, as he looked to me to for confirmation.
Yep, mung bean salad lucky man.
(oh relax, I’m feeling generous… you can have pizza as well.)
sprouted mung beans
one can of chickpeas
one finely sliced capsicum (pepper)
one finely sliced small chilli
couple of finely sliced shallots
a couple of slugs of great local olive oil
good pinch of cumin
and dried coriander
salt/pepper to taste
pop half a clove of crushed garlic (new season- which is a bit damn exciting)
juice of half a back yard lemon,
shake it up a bit and
add to your salad
eat with gusto… or pizza
