  1. To prepare this healthy lunch salad, in a small pan, heat the olive oil and fry the grated garlic on low heat for a few seconds. Add the cooked chickpeas, Cajun spice seasoning, salt and toss well until the flavours coat the chickpeas. Remove and allow to come to room temperature.
  2. Pluck out and wash kale leaves. Bring a small pot of water to boil. Add kale leaves. Leave in boiling water for a minute and then refresh in a bowl of iced water to retain bright green colour. Remove from water, squeeze gently and chop it.
  3. Wash and dry the red amaranth leaves.
  4. In a large bowl, add the chickpeas, millet, kale, amaranth and mix well.
  5. Drizzle extra virgin olive oil and lime juice. Season with a pinch of salt as the chickpeas are already salted.
  6. Pack in a lunch box or serve as it is. Tastes good warm or at room temp or cold.
