Ingredients

  • 1 red onion
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 15 oz can chickpeas drained
  • 1 15 oz can sweet corn drained
  • 2 Divine Flavor Zucchini
  • 3 tbsp Olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Dice red onion and place it in a pan with about 2 tbsps of the olive oil and make sure the flame is low. Stir onions often and let them caramelize - this is a long process (about 25-30 minutes) but adds so much flavor to this simple salad.
  • Next, dice garlic and toss in with caramelizing onions and stir well. If needed, use a couple splashes of water or vegetable stock to deglaze the pan. After a couple of minutes, spoon the onion and garlic mixture onto a plate and set aside.
  • Next, slice the zucchini and add the rest of the olive oil to the pan. When the oil is warm, add the zucchini and let the slices sit for about a minute or two. Make sure to check and when they have a char on them, flip them and let them char on the other side as well. Charring the already flavorful Divine Flavor Zucchini gives it such a delightful taste.
  • When zucchini are charred, add in the caramelized onion and garlic mixture, toss in the corn smf chickpeas and stir a minute or so.
  • Season with salt and pepper if needed and sprinkle with a bit of parsley and enjoy as a holiday side.
