Meat Free Monday
I can't believe I'm writing a post with the title "Meat Free"...anything! Meat is Life!
But... I've decided that I really truly need to step up my healthy eating and going meat-free a couple of days a week just seems like a really good idea.
Tonight I made a delicious Chickpea Salad that was so delicious... I ended up eating the whole tin of chickpeas by myself. I assume this defeats the purpose...but I'm taking baby steps here, ok.
Here's the recipe if you're keen:
1 tin of organic chickpeas in water
1 small red onion
juice of half a lemon (or a whole lemon if you like your food very lemoney)
big handful of coriander
big handful of basil
2 cloves of fresh garlic
half a fresh red chili
1 or 2 table spoons of olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
Chop up the basil, coriander, onion and, garlic chili. Throw it all in a bowl and mix.
So delicious! And pretty flipping filling.
