Lemon & Parmesan Chickpea Salad

If you’re looking for a plant based protein then chickpeas are great.  They contain 7.5g of protein per 100g, as well as a really healthy amount of fibre, are a great source of calcium, potassium and magnesium. 

This is a very quick and simple recipe that can be easily adapted.  For example, you could use feta cheese instead of parmesan or maybe lime juice instead of lemon.  I used parsley in this dish but you could try coriander or basil.
