Meat Free Monday

June 27, 2011   /   bynatalie  / Categories :  Uncategorized

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:

Shopping list:

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.
