It's officially winter and we here at Monochrome HQ are longing for all kinds of comfort food. Surely we are not alone.  It is not often you associate salads with wholesome comfort food, but this roast sweet potato and chickpea salad not only fills you up but can be served both warm and cold. As with all of our recipes, this salad is coeliac friendly, super simple and does not require a degree in chemistry to make it.
