Rhodes tops this Asian-inspired noodle salad with crunchy roasted chick peas. Easy to make and easy to pop into an office, or school, lunch box.


Roasted Chick Peas

1 x 410 g can Rhodes Chick Peas in Brine, drained and well dried
15 ml (1 T) olive oil
5 ml (1 t) ground cumin
2.5 ml (½ t) teaspoon cayenne pepper


30 ml (2 T) sweet chilli sauce
15 ml (1 T) rice vinegar
few drops of fish sauce
30 ml (2 T) olive oil


200 g egg noodles, cooked and cooled
200 g bag of coleslaw mix (carrots and green cabbage)
2 spring onions, thinly sliced
45 ml (3 T) fresh coriander, chopped


Place the Rhodes Chick Peas in a large bowl and toss with the oil, cumin and cayenne pepper to coat.
Spread the chick peas in an even layer on a rimmed baking sheet and bake in a preheated oven at 180˚C for 30 minutes or until crisp.
Allow to cool.

To make the dressing, mix together all the ingredients.
Mix together the noodles, the vegetables, the spring onions and the coriander.
Pour over the dressing and toss to mix well.
Top the salad with the crispy roasted chick peas and serve.

Cooking Tip
Make sure the Rhodes Chick Peas are dried very well before roasting. Use paper towels to dry them and allow them to sit out on the counter for 20 - 30 minutes to air dry even more before roasting.
