Green Chickpea and Tomato Salad

I love family hang outs. Growing up with a large extended family that would gather on every occasion we could, my cousins, aunts and uncles have become some of my my closest friends. I had a light day at work, so I invited some over for dinner and then got cooking. One friend was vegetarian and I wanted to create a meal that was entirely meat free but would still satisfy her meat eating husband and kids.

I have been looking for a recipe that uses the whole carrot, root to tip, for a while now and usually, it’s a bust. I don’t care how healthy they are, I don’t like pureed carrot green smoothies. Maybe I just haven’t found the right recipe, who knows, but what I do know is that if I don’t love what I’m eating, I’m not going to make it again.
