Ingredients

  • 8 ounces baby portabella mushrooms, cleaned and cut into quarters
  • 2 roasted red peppers, cut into small pieces
  • One, 15 ounce can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1/3 cup red wine or sherry vinegar

  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Combine mushrooms with chickpeas and roasted red peppers in a large mixing bowl.
  2. In a small saucepan, over medium heat, combine sherry vinegar with olive oil, garlic and red pepper flakes. Bring to a low boil and turn off heat. Pour vinaigrette over mushrooms, chickpeas and red peppers and gently stir.
  3. Let sit for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally so that ingredients absorb dressing. Add freshly chopped herbs and season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve at room temperature or chilled. Stir before serving (to distribute the dressing).
