Chickpea Asparagus and Beetroot Salad with Cumin and Orange

A simple lunch / dinner idea for the ageLOC TR90 program.

This covers the 2 x burning and 1 x coloured food choices but not the storing food.  You could add in a slice of grainy bread or some cooked brown rice if you like.

The cumin and orange combo is fantastic!!

If you don’t have almonds then use another type of nut.  If the amounts of chickpea / cottage cheese are not enough for you then add more.

Ingredients

1 cup cooked / tinned chickpeas, drained

1/2 cup cottage cheese plain or with herbs

1 tbs whole almonds

1 medium beetroot pickled (from a tin) or roasted chopped chunky

Zest and juice of 1 orange

2 tsp cumin seeds

4 asparagus spears, steamed until tender and drained

Sea salt and cracked black pepper

Method

Combine / arrange chickpeas beetroot asparagus and cottage cheese on a plate.  Sprinkle zest and squeeze orange juice over the top and also scatter cumin seeds and almonds gently.  Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve immediately.
