This summer chickpea pasta salad is super healthy, great for lunch and you can eat from it for an entire week.
I usually prep my lunch on the weekend, with a carb base (pasta, rice) and many many veggies. I try to eat lots of green veggies, as those are amazing for your health ¹. Joel Furhman calls these the king of all foods in his book Eat to Live. He recommends you eat a green salad every day to stay healthy. I try to do this and combine it with some healthy carbs, like wholegrain pasta or rice. In comes this delicious vegan chickpea salad!
The base for this chickpea salad is wholegrain pasta. I am an absolute pasta-lover and as long as you stay away from white or egg-based pasta, it is healthy. Of course it depends on what you combine it with – but pasta in itself is not bad for you. This vegan chickpea salad is filled with vegetables and pesto. I used store-bought vegan pesto, but you can also make your own.
