Ingredients

  • 15 oz chickpeas one can, drained and rinsed
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp Moroccan seasoning* or any type of seasoning you like
  • 1/3 cup tahini
  • 1/3 cup plain yogurt regular
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup leafy herbs (packed 1/2 cup) such as chives, cilantro, parsley, mint, basil, or tarragon
  • 1 clove garlic roughly chopped
  • 1/4 tsp salt or to taste
  • 5 oz mixed greens
  • 1/2 cup avocado cubed
  • 2/3 cup cherry tomatoes halved
  • 1/3 cup feta cheese crumbled

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 425F. Toss the chickpeas with the olive oil and Moroccan seasoning. Spread them in a single layer on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and roast for 20-30 minutes, until golden brown. Toss the chickpeas every 5-10 minutes for even browning.
  • Add the tahini, yogurt, lemon juice, herbs, garlic, and salt to a blender. Blend until completely smooth and uniform in color. If needed, add 1-2 tbsp water to thin it out.
  • Toss the mixed greens with the prepared dressing. Top with avocado, tomatoes, cheese, and serve.

Notes

*My blend was homemade with salt. If yours doesn't have any salt, add 1/4 - 1/2 tsp salt before roasting the chickpeas.
Homemade Moroccan spice blend (yield- 1 tbsp):
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ginger
  • 1/4 tsp coriander
  • 1/8 tsp allspice
