Prep Time: 15 minutes
Serving Size: 2 egg halves
8 eggs, hardboiled and peeled
1 14.5-oz can garbanzo beans (chickpeas), drained and rinsed
2 cloves garlic
1 small lemon, zested and juiced
1 tablespoon olive oil
¼ cup fat free, reduced sodium chicken or vegetable broth
½ teaspoon salt (optional)
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
¼ cup salsa
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
Chef Tip: To hard boil a perfect egg, cover the eggs with cold water in a soup pan. Put the pan over high heat and immediately start the timer, set for 20 minutes. When the water begins to boil, reduce to a simmer. When the timer goes off, remove eggs from heat, drain and immediately submerge in ice water. Let the eggs sit for 15-20 minutes in the ice water, then crack and peel.
