Roasted Haddock with a Smokey Tomato & Chickpea Ragu

People have gone wild for the chickpea at the minute. Whether it was a stockpile classic I don’t know but I have not been able to get my hands on a tin for months! Which has left the og chickpea lovers deprived and dare I say deflated πŸ˜‚ finally got my hands on some this week and made this super easy, super healthy, Mediterranean style haddock dish

Full of protein, fibre, healthy fats and vitamins. Tomatoes are a really good source of vitamin C, betacarotene and lycopene. So, lots of antioxidant properties πŸ‘πŸ»

Served with a big dollop of pesto on top. This was a basil and walnut pesto. I absolutely love mixing up the nuts I use in pesto as it’s a great way of getting the nutrient benefits of the different nuts and seeds. Brazil nut and walnut are my 2 faves πŸ™ŒπŸΌ
