Chickpeas Coleslaw

Chickpeas Coleslaw
I love coleslaw. Mmmmm, coleslaw and fried chicken, it’s one of my favorite food combo. But since we have pledged to eat clean, I make my coleslaw a little healthier. Chickpeas are so delicious and healthy. They are high in fiber, it’s a good source of protein and minerals for vegetarians, and they are excellent for weight loss diet.

I also add white cabbage, purple cabbage and carrot into this dish to create beautiful colors and texture into it. It’s light and fresh, a wholesome dish, and you can have it with anything.

I love the nutty, buttery texture of chickpeas against the freshness of crunchy vegetables. I had this as a whole meal for lunch. You can serve it as side dish as well. It’s so easy to make, very healthy and delicious.

Have a nice day,
