  1. Combine the chickpeas and olive oil in a saucepan. Add the paprika and lemon juice, and season well with sea salt and ground black pepper. Simmer very gently over low heat for about 5-8 minutes, or until the chickpeas have softened slightly and are warmed through.
  2. To serve, toss the chickpeas with the leftover turkey, taste, and season again if needed. Scatter the fresh dill over the top, and serve warm with a fresh green salad or some wilted spinach.
  • You could use canned white beans instead of chickpeas: try cannellini or butter beans.
