Ingredients

  • 1 can chickpeas (1 can = 15.5 oz)
  • 1 bunch parsley, fresh
  • 1 lime (zested and juiced)
  • 1 beetroot, pre-cooked
  • 2 tbsp mixed seeds (eg. pumpkin & sunflower seeds)
  • 1 orange (sliced in filets)
  • 1 tsp hot sauce (eg. sriracha)
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

Optional:

  • 1 tbsp capers (roughly chopped)

Instructions

  • Drain the chickpeas and give them a good rinse. Roast the seeds in a pan on medium heat until fragrant (no oil needed).
  • Chop the parsley, put it in a food processor or mortar. Add the lime zest, lime juice, garlic, hot sauce, olive oil, salt, pepper and blend it until it's green and smooth.
  • Put the chickpeas into a bowl, add the the ‘parsley dip’. Give it a good toss ;), add some salt to taste, and get it on a plate.
  • Filet the orange (this video is cool, just slice the orange after you’ve peeled it), cut the beetroot into nice pieces and garnish the salad.
  • If you like, add some capers on top, throw on the seeds, and enjoy.
