  • ¼ cup finely chopped parsley per serving
  • few tbsp tbsp pickled onions per serving (see notes)

  • Chop the cucumber, tomato, and parsley.
  • Whisk the tahini sauce ingredients together until smooth.
  • Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the chickpeas, lemon, and spices and heat through, about 5-10 minutes.
  • While they’re cooking, divide the kale, chopped veggies, and pickled onions between 4 bowls or containers.
  • Divide the chickpeas between each bowl then top each with tahini sauce. Serve with pita and if desired, hummus.

Notes

Also super tasty with any flat bread including naan! I add a lot of olives to my salad because olives are the best.
