Salad

  • 1 handful of coriander
  • 1 handful of parsley
  • 1 ripe mango
  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 1 red pepper
  • half a cucumber
  • 3- 4 shredded carrots
  • 10 – 15 kalamata olives
  • 1 can of black beans*
  • 1 can of corn*
  • 250 spelt pasta (I used shell pasta)
  • olive oil

Salad Sauce

  • salt
  • chilli
  • juice of 1 lemon

Hummus:

  • 1 can of chickpeas*  (+ apple vinegar, garlic, salt)

*Buy them in a glass instead of a can (if possible) due to heavy metals that can harm your body.

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Cook the pasta.
  2. While the pasta is cooking: chop the cucumber, pepper, the olives, mango and avocados and put it with the corn, beans and carrots in a large bowl.
  3. Add parsley, coriander and a handful of the chickpeas.
  4. Pour the juice of 1 lemon over the salad.
  1. Make a hummus with the remaining chickpeas: Blend the chickpeas with 2 teaspoons of apple vinegar, a bit salt and 2 garlic cloves.
  2. When the pasta is done rinse it and add a bit of olive oil and salt to it. When it has completely cooled down: add it to the salad bowl.
  3. Now top your salad with humus, chili and maybe some salt and it’s lunch /dinner (breakfast?) time! 🙂
