Warm Chickpea and Tuna Salad (BLW)

Sometimes it is difficult to constantly create fun and interesting things to eat every day, both for yourself and for the little ones. I often have an inspirational idea and by the time I have loaded the buggy and headed out to get the ingredients, I have forgotten what that was, so its all back to square one again... I am sure babies and children don't mind a little repetition with their food, as long as it tastes good and its not the same Every day!

Anyway, this time I managed to give her something new again, and it is also a great option for two reasons; 1) It is extremely easy and cheap to make and 2) babies can practice their pincer grasp! So all in all, cheap, fun and entertaining! What else do you want from a lunch?

Serves 1 plus baby

1 tin of chickpeas (drained and rinsed)
1 tin of tuna
1/2 lemon
1 tbs of chopped parsley
1 tbs olive oil

Add the chickpeas to a pan with a splash of water and warm gently for 10 minutes (to help soften them a little more). Add the tuna and stir through. Take off the heat and add the juice of 1/2 lemon (or to your taste), a grind of pepper, the chopped parsley and the olive oil. Stir well and serve once cool enough for baby.
