I love the chickpea-hiziki salad from Vegan with a Vengeance so much I could eat it with a spoon. Oh wait, I did. But then I put it on some ciabatta bread with lettuce, tomatoes and avocado. I usually tweak the recipe slightly by using fewer carrots and a little less vinegar and adding diced pickles and celery, but either way, YUM! And those veggie chips on the side weren't half bad either.

That looks great- I've been eating a lot of sandwiches with avocado lately, and all is lovely!

hi Chris!
aahh... it's much more relaxing to read your blog again now that I am back home. It was a bit tortuous to read about all your delicious and creative and nutritious meals with my hungry belly! I am not generally a sea veg person... not big on that flavor, but you two love these so much that it is starting to pique my curiousity.

Welcome home Amey! When I first made this salad I couldn't find hijiki and I used arame instead which is similar but with much milder sea veg. flavor so that's something you could try.

I'm with you on the avocado on sandwiches Bazu. The only trouble with avocados is that you've got a very narrow window of opportunity to use them when they're ripe.
