    **Jubes**'s Note:

    Kumara is gold sweet potato. For this recipe you could substitute a can of washed and drained chickpeas in place of the dried. If using the dried chickpeas, they do need to be soaked in water overnigh tand then cooked for about an hour

      Healthy little number that went down a treat. I sub'd baby spinach with young spinach leaves I had in the garden which seemed to work really well. Great dressing too!! Made for Aussie / Kiwi Swap March 2013.

      I love colourful dishes and this one is a beauty. I made as written, but next time would add up to a teaspoon of ground cumin. Cumin and chickpeas are made for each other. Thanks for posting such a healthy recipe that will make lots of appearances at our house.
