Chickpea brownies

Well, if you ever have an overabundance of chickpeas in your pantry, here’s an excellent use for them! I made half the source recipe as I only had about 240g chickpeas but it still worked out very well. Let’s answer the obvious question – there is the merest hint of chickpeas in the final product,…

Breakfast dinner salad

Just when I thought I had found the world’s best salad, the very next evening (a Monday of all evenings!) I come across a close second contender!
