Chickpea and Tomato Salad with Fresh Herbs
This was featured on Get The Gloss for Project Bikini:
This is a dish that I make practically every week because it’s quick to whip up and keeps well in the fridge. I love to use a big range of spices in my cooking as they create a lot of flavour but also because of their nourishing powers. Cumin and paprika help improve brain power and your skin’s complexion whilst turmeric, a naturally high anti-inflammatory, will help protect your body from disease.
1 bunch of flat leaf parsley, roughly chopped
Juice and zest of 1/2 a lemon
1/2 tsp cumin powder
1/2 tsp paprika powder
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
4 medium tomatoes, roughly chopped
3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1-2 tbsp white wine vinegar
A good pinch of unrefined caster sugar
Sea salt and black pepper
In a large bowl mix everything all the ingredients together. Taste to check the seasoning and add more if required. Store in the fridge until ready to serve.
