    This is an all year round salad recipe. It’s great with a plain salad but just as good with fish, meat or poultry. Chickpeas (also known as Garbanzo beans) have so many good things it isn’t possible to list them all here. The energy from them is slowly absorbed which keeps us full for longer and doesn’t cause blood sugar spikes. They are high in soluble fibre which helps prevent cholesterol from being absorbed into the bloodstream. They also contain zinc which is good for skin healing.

    Cauliflower contains Vitamin K1 which is needed for blood clotting and bone formation. It also contains 2g of fibre per 100g and antioxidants, which help protect us from environmental damage, both inside and outside our bodies. The big bonus is that it doesn’t cause blood sugar spikes and it absorbs spice very well.

    You can use as little or as much spice (yes please!) as you like to make this dish individual to you. Enjoy!
