Remember that childhood game of Broken Telephone that ended in hilarious messages so distorted and removed from the original? Well, this dish turns Broken Telephone to a much lovelier (not to mention more delicious) game.
I saw this mouth-watering Curried Chickpea Salad on Kalyn's Kitchen. She got it from her brother who saw it in the LA Times from some restaurant in LA that sounds like a great place to visit. Naturally Kalyn had to put her spin on the recipe ... and naturally, not able to leave well enough alone, I decided to do my own little twist, using Aleppo 7 Spice Blend from Epices de Cru, adding garlic, using avocado oil... you know how it goes once you start adding things to a recipe, it becomes something quite different from the original.
This one doesn't stray too far afield from the original, but it did get me thinking.... what are your favorite ways to make a dish your own?
