In Recipes, Salads by Sue Marshall

    • 1 240g tin chickpeas, drained
    • 120g broccoli
    • 1tbsp sesame oil
    • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
    • 1 pinch of sea salt
    • 1 medium carrot, grated
    • 1 bag mixed salad
    • Juice of half a lemon
    • 2tbsp tahini
    • ½ tsp garlic powder
    • 2tsp sesame seeds
    • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
    • Leaves from 4 stalks parsley
    • Heat the oven to 200C. Drain the chickpeas and spread them over a large oven tray. Divide the broccoli into small florets, toss those onto the baking tray too and drizzle with the sesame oil and sprinkle with cayenne and a good pinch of salt. Shake the pan to coat everything and roast for 15 minutes.
    • Meanwhile divide the carrot and leaves between two bowls then make the dressing.
    • In a small bowl mix together the lemon juice, tahini, garlic powder and enough water to make it a drizzly consistency. Stir in the sesame seeds and season to taste with salt and pepper.
    • Once the chickpeas and broccoli are toasty pile those into the bowls along with the leaves and carrot then drizzle over the dressing adding some parsley leaves as you go.
    • Note: Great to take to work as a pack lunch too.
