Orzo Chickpea Salad

These roasted veggie tacos are easy to prepare, require just a few simple ingredients and a handful of pantry-staple spices


- orzo - garbanzo beans - cherry tomatoes - red onion - fresh basil and mint leaves - red wine vinaigrette - salt and pepper

Fill a large pot with 4 cups of water and bring to a boil. Stir in the orzo and cover until it is fully cooked but al dente, about 7 minutes

Drain the water from the orzo and transfer it to a large bowl.

Toss, and set aside until the orzo has begun to cool.

Toss in the chopped onion and herbs, cherry tomatoes, and garbanzo beans. Add red wine vinaigrette dressing little by little, and salt and pepper to taste.

Serve at room temperature, or chill in the fridge beforehand.

It is best to add your herbs at the time of serving so that they do not wilt.
