Chickpea salad with garlicky yoghurt sauce

Quick and healthy lunch for work
Prep Time15 mins
Servings: 1


  • carton of organic chickpeas (I use SO Sainsbury's chickpeas)
  • 1/2 red or orange pepper (cubed)
  • 1/2 avocado (cut in cubes)
  • 2 spring onions (chopped)
  • a handful of plum tomatoes (halved)
  • 1/4 cucumber (sliced and quartered)

Garlicky yoghurt sauce

  • 1 clove of garlic (finely chopped)
  • 2-3 tbsp natural low fat yoghurt
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • salt as desired
  • 1/2 squeezed lemon juice


  • Drain chickpeas and put them into your lunch container or on a deep plate.
  • Add all the chopped vegetables and mix all together.
  • Prepare the garlicky yoghurt sauce: in a separate container mix garlic, yoghurt, olive oil, lemon juice and salt.
  • If you take it to work, make sure all the containers are tightly closed so they don't leak!
