Ingredients

  • 2-3 gently packed cups arugula or your favorite salad greens
  • 1 bell pepper cut in bite size chunks
  • 2 cups mushrooms cut in bite size chunks
  • 2 cups zucchini cut in bite size chunks
  • 2/3 can chickpeas drained and rinsed pat dry
  • 1 avocado mashed
  • 3/4 cup sliced cucumber
  • Oil for roasting

Spice mix (you may have extra leftover):

  • 1/4 tsp each cayenne thyme, dried oregano, dried basil
  • 3/4 tsp each kosher salt chili powder (or sub paprika), onion powder, garlic powder

Spicy tahini

  • 3 tbsp pourable tahini
  • 1 tsp hot sauce or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder and kosher salt
  • Juice of 1/2 lime or lemon
  • Approx 2 tbsp water to thin

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Cover 2 baking trays with parchment paper (if preferred) and arrange chopped veggies on one, chickpeas on other. Or do on 1 tray if can fit, but keep separated.
  • Then drizzle with oil, toss well to coat,very generously sprinkle with spice mix, toss. Bake.
  • After 15-20 min, remove chickpeas. Toss/flip veggies, bake another 5 to 10 min or until cooked to your liking. I tend to like veggies crisper so I leave them in longer sometimes.
  • Whisk tahini, hot sauce, spices, lime juice very well until thickened, then slowly add water while stirring
  • Let vegetables and chickpeas cool while arranging arugula in bowls. Top w/ cucumbers, avocado, chickpeas, veggies. Drizzle tahini sauce.
