Link Love Sunday | Add A Little

Wow I’ve actually had a really productive week and time is flying SO fast! I literally can’t even believe that I end school in a week and a half ahhh major panic do-I-have-all-of-my-books?! (probably sounding like a major dork). But hopefully I can semi relax in the midst of all my books to read! Also, I will be having ALOT more vlogs for those of you that are interested – I’m thinking of linking them here each week so you can check them out?

I really would like a bowl like this!

These stuffed peppers – the ultimate summer dinner!

This sweetcorn and radish salad is the perfect summer dish!

This Thai citrus crunch salad is everything I want and MORE.

Is buckwheat the new quinoa? I love the look of this buckwheat soup!

These need to be made ASAP.

The vegetable butcher is my new favourite column on The Kitchn – here’s one on celery root!

This pasta salad with grilled asparagus and nectarine sounds perfect for a picnic!

Also loving these grilled baby potatoes with a herby dressing.

YES to this grilled polenta with artichokes, tomatoes and pesto!

Tadashi’s grilled tomatoes look hella fine!

So I’ve been super busy this week but this weekend has been super nice to unwind – I went out for lunch with my friend yesterday at Le Pain Quotidien (SO good!) and off to Brighton today which will be nice! I’ve also got like a bajillion updates to tell you about but I’ll leave that for Tuesday! (cliffhanger!)

This sweet potato coconut soup with lentils sounds so delicious!

These 10 minute artichoke, basil and white bean toasts sound phenomenal!

These cacao nib strawberry waffles (shown above) would make the best breakfast!

Majorly crushing on these vegetable burrito bowls!

These roasted baby carrots with hummus and pomegranate dressing. Heaven.

I need a massive bowl of these crispy frizzled artichokes now.

This dip combines all my favourite green things: avocado, kale and artichoke!

Love these sweet potato fritters with lime crema!

Totally not food related, but I can’t even handle how cute George is!

Fresh Chickpea Salad

Fresh Chickpea Salad | Add A Little

Since the weather is getting so much warmer, I love dining al fresco. Like I practically eat lunch in the park whenever I can.

I’ve been craving beans like a madwoman recently (probably due to my recent trip to Ethos where they had an amazing salads and a flavourful chickpea tagine!) so I’ve been making so many recipes with them!

I love making salads with beans because a) they don’t go soggy and actually taste really good and even better when left in the fridge to marinade and b) They are really light and healthy so it doesn’t weigh you down on a hot summers day!

Fresh Chickpea Salad vegan, gluten free, dairy free
Serves 2

I like to make this a few hours prior to making it as I think the flavours really work well together. I serve it atop leaves, here I used lambs lettuce which was wonderfully sweet and tender but spinach would work, or if you’re looking for a stronger flavour, arugula would be wonderful!

1/2 can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
Handful of cherry tomatoes, diced
1/3 cucumber, diced
1 spring onion, sliced finely
Handful of coriander (parsley would also work well)
1/2 lemon, juice and a bit of zest
Salt and pepper, to taste
Extra virgin olive oil

Make a dressing out of the lemon, salt, pepper and extra virgin olive oil in a jar and shake it up.

Pour all the ingredients in a bowl and dress with the dressing.

Serve straight away or allow to chill in the fridge for the flavours to marinade.
