Warm Chickpea & Tuna Salad

August 20, 2013

Healthy Eating

I wanted to eat something very healthy but I was  so not feeling the salad that was in one of my cookbooks.  So I did what any amateur chef  would do and spruced up my food to make a very tasty and filling salad.

This recipe was adapted from 101 Cheap Eats (BBC, 2009).

Warm Chickpea Tuna Salad


1 tbsp sunflower oil, 1 onion (peeled and chopped), 1 garlic clove (peeled and chopped finely), 400g tinned chickpeas (drained), 200g tinned tuna (drained), 1 beef tomato, 3 tbsp mixed herbs, 1 tbsp lemon juice, 2 large handfuls chopped spinach, salt and pepper.


1. Heat the oil over a medium heat in a wok.
2. Add the onion and garlic.
3. When softened add the chickpeas and tuna.
4. Add the rest of the ingredients.
5. When the spinach has wilted season to taste.

Serving Tips:

1. Serve with warm pitta bread.
2. Serve with couscous.
3. Parmesan Cheese.
