Carrot And Chickpea Salad

Longevity logo Longevity 12-09-2018 Gisèle Wertheim Aymes

We love this hearty carrot and chickpea salad recipe. It ticks our #BITHK boxes for easy healthy eating in any kitchen. Plus, it features Pesto Princess’s Moroccan winner – Harissa Paste.Filled to the brim with red peppers, chillies, garlic and spices, 100% fresh and free of nasty preservatives. Chillies and garlic are proven anti-oxidants and important for good health and vitality.

The recipe is quick and easy to prepare as we start to move in between seasons. Ideal for vegetarians or those just wanting a high protein alternative to a meat based salad, as it is  packed with healthy and fresh nutrients.

You can enjoy this on its own, or serve as an accompanying salad with a barbeque or baked dishes.
