Chickpea and Roasted Pepper Salad

Before I left to go on my year abroad to France, one of my flatmates very kindly gave me a cookbook called “A Vegan Taste of France” by Linda Majzlik! It’s a really cool book, and has loads of great meat-free French recipes that I’ve been dying to try out. Today I gave an easy salad a go, seeing as I don’t have a lot of kitchen spaceΒ to make something super complex.

This salad is really delicious, really simple (read: not too expensive) and takes hardly any time to make. So far I’ve found that French food doesn’t have a lot of ingredients, but it always tastes great – they do simple foodΒ reallyΒ well. Especially desserts. It should come as no surprise that I like the dessert part of moving abroad best.

Anyway, if you’re looking for a cheap, quick mid-week meal, look no further than this salad – you can pair it with rice or pitta bread to make it a bit more substantial, or mix in some salad leaves for a light lunch.

Hope you enjoy!
