Healthy and fast it must go, at least at home. My husband is somehow always and constantly hungry and since we have two huskies, we are a good deal more active. What does it mean? More hunger! That is exactly why we need Noon a good portion of healthy carbohydrates and proteins. The good thing about this salad is that the easily digestible ingredients mean you won’t fall into that nasty afternoon slump like you do with some other heavy lunches. This is especially advantageous if you have an office job. Oh yes, I know the lows after lunch too well, sometimes only tons of coffee helps.
A vegan salad with a difference with lots of delicious dressing
This salad consists of healthy vegetables pure, Sweet potatoes , broccoli, peppers and delicious dill.
Are sweet potatoes actually healthy?
Absolutely, because the yellow tubers are not only delicious, but also full of healthy ingredients:
- They actually have nothing in common with the potato, except their name
- They have a relatively high sugar content, but do not worry, this is easily digestible fructose, which provides quick energy.
- Sweet potatoes are extremely low in calories and fat
- the more orange the tubers, the higher the content of beta-carotene (precursor of vitamin A), which has a cell-protective effect and strengthens the body’s defenses
- They are full of healthy vitamins and minerals
A vegan salad with lots of vegetables, chickpeas and creamy dressing (bring it on!)
But something else makes the salad special: the oriental spiced and baked Chickpeas . Here you should definitely save the Chickpea water (aquafaba) because it’s perfect for making a variety of treats, such as vegan strawberry ice cream , Straciatella, Cookie Dough or Chocolate Mousse Cake .
Now all that’s missing is the finishing touch, and that’s a creamy hummus-based dressing. You can either make it yourself, or buy it ready-made in the health food store, supermarket or at the oriental store around the corner. Add garlic, dill, lemon juice and a little water to dilute. If you want to make a real superfood salad out of it, I recommend adding plant-based protein powder. You can find the link to my favorite protein at the bottom of the preparation.
