Mother Hubbards work lunch

As much as I would love it, like most people I don't have a Nigella sized pantry or a Master Chef store room that is restocked by the ingredient fairies overnight.
So there are time I stand in front of the fridge/pantry and say I have nothing to make. This quick post was the result of throwing some of the nothing together and ending up with a pretty good work lunch or side salad.

Rocket chickpea salad
Ingredients (or whatever you have on hand)
  • rocket (washed)
  • 1 can chickpeas (or soak dried)
  • chopped capsicum
  • chopped red onion
  • chopped sweet chili
  • Juice of 2 oranges
  • good splash olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • Combine all ingredients and toss
  • I didn't make the dressing separately I just added it all together.
  • Serve and enjoy the pleasure of creating something from what seemed nothing.
