“This dish is super high in fibre, which is something we lack in Western culture, and great for digestive support and the gut,” explains nutritionist Rosemary Ferguson.

“It is also rich in antioxidants from the squash and sprouts, which is great for the skin, the immune system and helps to balance inflammation. The chickpeas are a wonderful source of plant protein and help to control blood sugar levels, among other things.”
