GREAT AS A SIDE OR MAIN / NUTRITIOUS + FILLING / VEGAN + VEGETARIAN

I love making new creations using leftovers, and that's precisely how this salad was born. I had some leftover roast carrots and chickpeas, and bulgar wheat from my Miso Carrots meal, so I added a few fresh greens, and voila!


One of my home cooking mantras is: Cook once, eat twice!


This salad is a perfect example of that saying. When I'm roasting veg, I like to make a big batch, that way, I usually have leftovers which I can enjoy as is or transform into something else.


I hope this example inspires you to look at your leftovers a bit differently so you can come up with some tasty reinventions!

ROAST CARROT SALAD

Instructions

If you're making this with leftovers, I encourage you to get creative, seeing as you'll be working with whatever you have left, so the quantities are up to you!


If you're making this from scratch, you can find the recipes for the:

Miso Roasted Carrots HERE

Sriracha Roasted Chickpeas HERE


Prepare the bulgar wheat:

While the carrots and chickpeas are roasting, you can cook the Bulgar Wheat. First, prepare 1 cup of uncooked bulgar wheat following the cooking instructions on the packet. Once cooked, let it cool down to room temperature. 


Once the Carrots and Chickpeas are roasted and cooled down to room temperature, you can start to assemble the salad. Here, I'll let you decide on the amounts depending on the size of salad that you want to make.


Using a nice big salad bowl or mixing bowl, add the chopped kale and cooked bulgar wheat and mix them well.


Add the sliced roast carrots and baby spinach and give the salad a gentle toss. 


To finish, add the roasted chickpeas, sugar snap peas and seed sprinkle. Drizzle a bit of olive oil over the top and season if necessary. 

 

ENJOY + HAPPY EATING!
