Salad with Wheat Berries, Figs, Avocado and Chickpeas

Salad with Wheat Berries, Figs, Avocado and Chickpeas

Looking for the perfect blend of fresh ingredients and a taste to match? Then look no further than our salad with wheat berried figs, avocado, and chickpeas recipe. 

I love salad and chances are, you do to. In fact, any time you think of vegan food, you probably think salad. Most people do. So I think that it’s only fitting we have add to our growing salad recipes. But this isn’t going to be just like every other salad you see. Oh no. It’s going to blow your mind. 

In this recipe, we have included a mix of vegetables and fruits to give a balanced, highly nutritious meal that not only looks great, but is bursting with flavor. And with the great source of complex carbohydrates (the good kind of carb), this dish is just about perfect to have after the gym or a physically exhausting day. But who am I kidding, eat this whenever you want!

To make this ultimate salad, you will need 9 ingredients and 35 minutes. 

We start this recipe off with some wheat berries. Wheat berries are a good source of protein, dietary fiber, and complex carbohydrates, as well as being highly nutritious due to the wheat not being processed and keeping almost its entire natural form.

We then add our salad ingredients and from these, we are offered a good source of vitamin B6, vitamin C, vitamin A, calcium, folate, magnesium, potassium, and iron – just to name a few. 

The salad with wheat berries, figs, avocado, and chickpeas is the perfect dish for lunch or dinner because it’s: 

  • So colorful and fun to eat! 
  • Family friendly.
  • Travel friendly.
  • A good source of protein – 14g per serve.
  • A fantastic source of fiber – 18g per serve!

This salad is perfect for preparing in advance and taking it with you to work or having it ready to eat at home. But to do that, you will need to store your salad. Place your already made salad into an airtight container and place it in the fridge for up to 48 hours. 

And there we have it – the salad with wheat berries, figs, avocado, and chickpeas. I really hope you enjoy this recipe. See you next time!
