I wasn’t a fan of bell peppers until this recipe. 

👩🏽‍🍳 Quick tip:I would recommend including Red bell pepper to get the sweet taste and its filled with Vitamin A.

Healthy Chickpea Salad With Avocado

Honestly, I am not really a fan of chickpeas until I started cooking with it. They don’t really have a flavour as such but they go very well with any vegetables in a salad. Also since they are high in protein, they are super healthy and make an excellent replacement for meat in vegetarian and vegan diets.
