Food Assembly – not recipes

We often get intimidated by thinking about a “new recipe” – instead of getting frightened off trying new things – just think of it as putting stuff together – eg grilled salmon, and broccoli – makes a fantastically simple meal – of course you can make it more complicated by adding ginger, garlic, herbs and spices – but at its simplest, salmon and broccoli are delicious.  Try this piece of food assembly below!

Chickpea, cauliflower and Feta salad

This is one of the easiest and quickest meal salads and it’s very tasty too.  The cauliflower will give the salad some crunch and the creaminess of the feta some richness.  Chickpeas are a source of phytoestrogens, and most vegetables also contain these hormone balancing nutrients.  If you want to increase the phytoestrogen content of the salad, you could add some chopped celery or fennel.

Serves 2-3
Preparation time: 10 minutes

1 small to medium sized cauliflower, cubed
1 tin of chickpeas (400g)
4-5 spring onions, sliced
1 carrot, grated
200g pack of feta cheese, cubed
Juice of ½ lemon
2 tbs olive oil
Handful of chopped coriander

1.    Wash and cube the cauliflower and place the cubes in a salad bowl.
2.    Drain and rinse the chickpeas and add to the cauliflower.
3.    Slice the spring onions and add to the mixture.
4.    Peel and grate the carrot and mix into the salad.
5.    Add the cubed Feta cheese.
6.    Mix the lemon juice and olive oil and add to the salad.  Mix well.
7.    Add the chopped coriander and serve.
