Roasted Pumpkin, Chickpea and Sundried Tomato Salad with Feta

Roasted Pumpkin Salad with Chickpeas, Sundried Tomato and Goats Feta - A delicious salad that is satisfying and suitable for the whole family. Gluten Free & Vegan Option.

This chunky pumpkin and feta salad is a hearty and filling salad that is full of flavour! The sweetness of the pumpkin goes perfectly against the sharpness of the sundried tomatoes and the nuttiness of the chickpeas.

This salad is perfect to take to a BBQ here in (mostly) sunny NZ or for those of you in colder climates can make a perfect dish for thanksgiving or the festive season.

The chickpeas give this dish a good serving of protein making it great to take as a side or nice and filling to have as a tasty stand alone dish. This salad is suitable for the whole family, so can also be great to take on a picnic or to pack into lunches. My little toddler loves pumpkin and chickpeas (being a fanatic of small and round things to eat), so if giving him some of this salad I just remove the sliced red onion which is a bit strong for him.

I love putting chunky roasted vegetables in salads. Pumpkin is always a winner due to its natural sweetness and it makes a nice change to enjoy it in a salad as opposed to your usual roasted styles. Butternut squash and buttercup could also be used in this salad.

Chickpeas are one of my go to staples and I love adding them to pretty much anything! Fantastic for plumping up any leftovers – add some chickpeas and maybe a couple more vegetable if necessary and you have another dinner ready to go. If you are in a salad mood then instantly make it more filling by adding some chickpeas and if all else fails and the cupboards are bare make some hummus and have on toast with tomato – an instant healthy snack!

Love Food Nourish Nutrition Tips

  • Pumpkin’s are an excellent source of Vitamin A which is fantastic for the immune system and is essential for healthy vision. They also contain antioxidants, are great for healthy skin and are naturally high in fibre.
  • Chickpeas are an excellent source of fibre and protein so can help you stay full for longer without needing to reach for any snacks. Nothing helps control blood sugar better than a mix of fibre and protein and chickpeas are an excellent source of both. Chickpeas contain half of the daily RDI of fibre and two thirds of that fibre is insoluble making it excellent for keeping the colon healthy.
  • Chickpeas are high in various nutrients that have been shown to be important for heart health and lower cholesterol such as potassium, folate, vitamin b6. They are also good sources of iron, zinc, manganese and molybdenum, making them a good iron source for those on a plant based diet. I could go on but I think that’s enough for one post, but the take home message is chickpeas have numerous health benefits!
