You asked for more single-girl meals (well, some of you did…), and that’s exactly what you’re going to get.
For those of you that aren’t single or girls, you can just call this a budget meal for people who don’t have time to cook anyway. It’s just less catchy.
The key to a good SGM is that is has to only require ingredients you probably already have on-hand, serve roughly one person (two if it can keep until lunch the next day), and cost less than $5 to make.
I give you:
Super-Simple Chickpea Salad
1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1/2 red onion
2 T feta cheese
Juice from 1/2 lemon
Salt to taste
Y’all ready for this? Combine the above ingredients. Welp, you’re done.
Here’s what I like about this recipe, besides the fact that its cheap and simple and tasty:
1. It can be a snack, a side dish, or even a meal. (I mean, when you’re eating for one, whom do you have to impress?)
2. On the off chance you do want to impress someone with this salad, you just have to throw in a few extras, like wilted spinach, chopped tomatoes or cucumber, or even some cold chicken pieces if you’re feeling extra ritzy.
So there you have it. You’re welcome.
