Roast Pumpkin and Chickpea Salad

Roast Pumpkin and Chickpea Salad

This recipe is great if you have some leftover rotisserie chicken or of course you could roast up a chicken yourself and add the pumpkin and chickpeas to the oven in the last 15 minutes of cooking time. It’s also great for lunches and you can pre-make a few serves and just grab them from the fridge when you’re on the go.

The serving size is suitable if you’re on the low FODMAP diet and are in line with the Monash Low FODMAP Diet App and the FODMAP Friendly app (at the time of writing).
