MOROCCAN ROASTED CHICKPEA SALAD

This munchy crunchy Moroccan roasted chickpea salad is a flavorful way to eat chickpeas and sweet potatoes. The Wheatless Kitchen’s recipe features chickpeas baked in lemon, honey, paprika, cumin and extra virgin olive oil. Can you smell your kitchen just reading that?! Each serving packs almost a quarter of a day’s worth of fiber and, as with all things sweet potato, plenty of vitamin A. This salad can be served as a meal or enjoyed as a side.
