Recipe: Chickpea mash

Chickpea mash

Preparation Time: 20 minutes.
Serves 4

4 medium boiled potatoes
2 cans chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1 heaped tsp wholegrain mustard
1 tbsp chopped chives or coriander
Water (as much as necessary to reach the desired consistency)
1 tbsp plain low fat yoghurt (optional)

Mash the potatoes and chickpeas in a bowl. Add some water if necessary. Mix in the mustard and herbs. If you eat yoghurt, add it to make the texture a bit more creamy

Tip: you can even add some nuts or seeds to this mash. Try something like linseeds which won't change the taste of the dish but are a great source of omega-3 fatty acids.
