Two more salads!

I just can't make myself cook on 35-40 degree days. Ice, Frozen fruit and veggies are about all I feel like eating so more salad recipes it is!

They're so full of flavour and texture they don't need dressings (you won't even miss them!)
 Chickpea Salad
Serves 2
1/2 Avocado
small handful chopped almonds
6-ish chopped sun-dried tomatoes
cucumber
1 can drained chickpeas
1 tbsp ground chia seeds
mushrooms
spinach
watercress
rocket
green beans
  • It's a salad, no instruction needed- cut it up-put in on a plate and dig in!
The protein in the chickpeas will keep you full and bouncy for ages, not to mention the good fats in the nuts/seeds/avocado which will make sure you don't feel deprived in the slightest!

Roast Vegetable Salad
Serves 2
Mixed lettuce leaves
spinach
iceberg lettuce (I like it for extra crunch!)
1/2 avocado
mushrooms
cucumber
celery
broccoli
1 tbsp ground chia seeds
cold roast sweet potato
cold roast carrot
cold roast beetroot
pumpkin seeds
  • roast veg at 180 for 1hr-ish (my oven's 1000 yrs old yours should take less!)
  • let it cool and refrigerate = a nice salad addition
  • make a yummy salad with the above ingredients
It's the perfect use for left over veggies without having to heat up the apartment and it only takes a few mins to throw together! Hope you enjoy too- or even just get inspired to get creative with your salads- see what's in the house, think about what you could add to make it a super salad (fruit, nuts, seeds, legumes, beans etc etc) Have some fun with it- salads have a really bad rap with most people but they can be the best meals and make you feel great!

Hope you're all keeping smiling and enjoying the new year xxx
