Ingredients

  • 2 medium sized sweet potatoes
  • 1 can chickpeas (try and buy organic as these tend not to be cooked in the can so are easier for your body to digest)
  • 4 x large cloves of garlic (8 regular ones)
  • 1 large lemon (or lime), juice
  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • Salad (any kind, I used rocket and spinach)
  • 1 avocado

SPICES
I used:

  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (or chilli flakes or chilli powder)

But instead of garam masala and cumin you could use (curry powder, turmeric, paprika or ground coriander)

DRESSING

  • 1 large lemon (or lime), juice
  • 6 tbsp tahini
  • Water to desired consistency
