Filling salad you can make at your office table!

The best thing? Everything is easy to wash because the processes required only include boiling and microwaving. Say goodbye to scrubbing pots.

You will only need 5 items for this recipe.

  1. Romaine Lettuce
  2. Chickpeas
  3. Pasta of your choice. I’m using whole wheat pasta.
  4. Begedil (fried potato cutlet)
  5. Edamame
  6. Roasted sesame dressing (or whatever dressing you like, really)

First, cut your romaine lettuce and throw them into a bowl. Then throw in some plain boiled chickpeas. I make a big batch at home every week, and I bring a container of it to the SGShop office. See yesterday’s post for more details on how I prepare chickpeas.

Microwave the frozen begedil until hot – time and settings depends on your microwave. It heats up better with an airfryer, but without one in the office, a microwave will have to suffice. I bought a pack of 12 for $2.50 from the frozen Halal section at Sheng Siong.

Boil frozen edamame and pasta in your electric pot.

Assemble and throw on a dressing of your choice. I used this Kewpie roasted sesame sauce one of our SGShop team members bought from Sheng Siong for $4.90. (Not sponsored by Kewpie. Would love to be, though.) You only need a little bit. One bottle will last for months on end.
