Servings: 2 Serving for a meal (4 servings for appetizer)


  • Frying Pan
  • Container to mix dressing in
  • Measureing Cups
  • Large mixing bowl



  • 1 tbsp Garlic Powder
  • 2 cloves Minced Garlic
  • 4 tsp Lemon Juice
  • 1/2 tsp Dijon Mustard I like a full tsp but half is good too!
  • 1/4 tsp Salt I use Himalayan Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Fresh Ground Pepper Again I prefer a full tsp for a more peppery flavour!
  • 1/4 cup Tahini
  • 1/4 cup Cold Water


  • 1/2 can Chickpeas 540 mL 19 fl oz
  • 1 tbsp Garlic Powder
  • to taste Salt
  • 1 tbsp  Italian Seasoning
  • 1 bunch Kale



  • Throw all the dressing ingredeint into a mason jar, the order does not matter. Put on the lid and shake shake shake! Set aside in the fridge!


  • For the chickpea crutons cover the pan with a little olive oil and cook the chickpeas on medium heat until they are a little crispy and you hear a poppin. sound This should take approximalty 5 minutes on a medium heat.
  • Once the chickpeas are cooked reduce heat and add, 1 tbsp garlic powder, salt to taste, 1 tbsp Italian seasoning. Mix them up and set aside.

Salad Prep

  • Wash and chop 1 large bunch of kale. Add to a mixing bowl and pour on the dressing. Toss the salad and add in vegan bacon bits (lots of bacon bits are accidentally vegan!) Add chickpea “croutons” And serve!



The chickpea croutons don’t keep that well in my opinion so always make those fresh! This salad is so perfect for lunch or as a side with your dinner!
