Indian Rice and Chickpea Salad

When you are pregnant the change in hormones can often cause issues with your digestive system. The chickpeas and brown rice in this salad provide large amounts of fiber and roughage that will help to keep you regular. Paired with cranberries – this tasty dish has the added benefit of warding off urinary tract infections.

14 oz can of no salt added chickpeas or 14 oz of cooked chickpeas
1 cup cooked brown rice
1/4 cup cranberries
1 TBSP Garam Masala
2 TSP cumin seeds
1 TSP red chili flakes
1 TSP ground dried ginger
1 TSP salt
Juice of 1/2 a lemon
Olive Oil

Combine all ingredients into a bowl – add a glug of olive oil just enough to mix through – about 3 TBSP. Stir together so that spices are evenly distributed and serve. Chill after making. I find it gets even better when left over night in the fridge.
