    2 days ago by brownpapernutrition CHOC GINGER COOKIES : Inspiration for this one from my lovely friend Leo, whom I’ve known for about 25 years – amazing how time passes so quickly! She wandered into our kitchen in Bondi the other week to pick up some food and we were talking about delicious things to cook and I asked her what she might like to snack on and chocolate ginger flavours immediately popped up.

SPROUTY CHICKPEA SALAD WITH TAHINI YOGHURT

A bit like a waldorf salad but with a seriously nutritious punch! Loving my throw this in and throw that in, create with whatever is on hand salads that are rocking lunch break at the moment!

Chickpeas and sprouts are the hero in this salad. You might be seeing a few sprouts pop up in the recipes at the moment:

a) because they’re on hand and if it’s on hand it’s going in! and

b) because these tiny sprouts are rich in ‘proteolytic enzymes’

Proteolytic enzymes help digest protein and carbohydrates so they are highly valuable to us in the diet, and win win win one of the richest sources is SPROUTS!

I’ve used mung and alfalfa here, if honestly I had a bit more time I would try to sprout my own chickpeas too, but use what is on hand and easy for you to bring this beauty together. Playing with broccoli sprouts is on my list next.

You can eat as is because there are lovely sources of plant based proteins in this salad or team it up with a piece of protein of your choice.

Enjoy wonderful humans… J x
