Chickpea and kale salad

This roasted chickpea and kale salad with a simple tahini dressing is a surprisingly substantial meal. Even the fussiest eater in my household agrees.

Spanish-style vegan meatballs {gluten-free, soy-free, egg-free, airfryer}

This dish is one of my all-time favourites. I’ve been making a version of it for almost 10 years. Using an airfryer to cook the vegan chickpea meatballs does make preparing this dish easier and cleaner, but you can also pan fry them.

In the spirit of new beginnings, this chickpea and kale soup is the perfect way to kick start the year (AKA January, the Monday of the year). It has a surprising ingredient of rooibos tea, which has anti-inflammatory properties, is rich in calcium and has anti-aging cognitive powers. I’ve used the tea as a face toner (true story!) and I immediately noticed a reduction in inflammation around spots and patches. I highly recommend rooibos tea for anyone suffering from inflammation in the body.
