Chickpea & Goji Salad

just the thing for a quick lunch

This recipe comes courtesy of a magazine I picked up on my travels – don’t ask me the name of it because I’ve shamefully forgotten.

When it comes to recipes, I’m like a magpie. Every day about a dozen recipes catch my eye and I’ll hoard them away for later (bad analogy – magpies don’t really do that. Do they?!)

chickpeas are high in folate and….

It’s like a dusty old filing cabinet in there [taps forehead].

…goji berries are a ‘superfood’, thanks to their ridiculously high antioxidant content

I read once that women think about food times 15 a day.

swop out the goji berries for cranberries if that’s all you can get your hands on

Between recipe hunting, meal planning, general snackage and writing up posts I reckon I hit about 150 on a good day.

If only they gave out prizes for obsessively thinking of your belly.

P.S I’m heading north to wintry Canada today for a post-Crimbo visit with family. I’ll be posting daily as usual but won’t be around to answer comments for the next week. Please don’t let this put you off leaving comments however, I always love hearing from you. Happy (almost) New Year folks!
