Gluten Free Spinach Chickpea Salad

Tasty and healthy summer salad

Something you probably already know about me if you’ve seen or tried any of my recipes on here is that I’m a big advocate of sticking whatever I have together to see how it turns out. My spinach and chickpea Wasabi Dijon Salad is another of these things. It’s super simple and it’s yummy.

Now I didn’t make the dressing myself although I plan to try my hand at making my own dressings in the near future. For now, this is an interesting and very tasty dressing that I found in a grocery store in SF by Maple Grove Farms of Vermont. It’s fat free and gluten free Wasabi Dijon Dressing. I thought it sounded delicious and it truly is. The ingredients in my salad I think compliment this dressing really well but if you can’t find this try another yummy sounding dressing or vinagrette and let me know so that I can try it out too! 🙂

Ingredients (Serves 1)

  • 150 grams fresh, washed spinach
  • One egg
  • Third of a can of chickpeas
  • Quarter of a red onion (sliced)
  • One medium tomato (sliced)
  • Soy sauce (in place of oil)
  • Your favourite dressing or vinagrette

How to make it

  • Put a couple of splashes of gf soy sauce in a pan
  • Crack an egg and scramble in the soy
  • Add chickpeas, red onion and tomatoes and simmer for 5 minutes
  • Serve on spinach, drizzle in dressing and enjoy!

TIP: Try adding sliced peppers to the mix! I plan to try this next time 🙂
