Warm nights call for light, fresh and easy salads using staple ingredients you can grab from the cupboard. ?⠀

This recipe calls for pretty basic ingredients – chickpeas, rice and vegetables – but once it’s combined with the sweet and sticky mango dressing, it pulls everything together and makes for one delicious salad. ?⠀

Recipe (serves 4)⠀

For the salad:⠀
400g tinned chickpeas⠀
1 tsp curry powder⠀
1 tsp cumin⠀
1 tsp tumeric⠀
1 tsp olive oil⠀
250g pre cooked basmati rice⠀
½ red pepper, finely diced⠀
½ onion, finely diced⠀
½ cup sweetcorn ⠀
Handful of lettuce leaves, sliced⠀
1 carrot, grated⠀
¼ cup pumpkin seeds⠀

For the dressing:⠀
2 tbsp mango chutney⠀
1 tbsp lemon juice⠀
1 tbsp olive oil⠀
1 tbsp vegan mayonnaise⠀
1 tsp curry powder⠀
1 tbsp water⠀

Preheat oven to 180c.⠀

In a bowl, mix together tinned chickpeas, olive oil, curry powder, tumeric and cumin. Place chickpeas on a baking tray and roast for 15 to 20 minutes. ⠀

Meanwhile, in a separate bowl, whisk together all ingredients for the dressing and set aside. ⠀

Once chickpeas are cooked, add these along with the remaining salad ingredients to a bowl, top with the dressing, salt and pepper and a pinch of fresh lime juice. ⠀
