fiid Hack: Moroccan Butterbean and Carrot Ribbon Salad With Roasted Chickpeas

Having a repertoire of 'go to' recipes has always been something I've aspired to but haven't quite ever gotten around to: a bit of a pipe dream, something I'll do when I've settled down, have more free time, have a nicer kitchen, own more beautiful plates. I'm still not there but what I do have are a whole load of fun and creative ways to eat fiid like this Moroccan Butterbean and Carrot Ribbon Salad With Roasted Chickpeas, the kind of dish that when served to friends is sure to impress and make them think that you do in fact, have a repertoire of 'go to' recipes which is actually just as good to be honest.
