  • 2 Tbsp. coconut oil melted
  • 1 medium yellow onion sliced
  • 1 large sweet potato cubed
  • 1/2 head broccoli chopped into florets
  • 1 tsp salt
  • pinch black pepper
  • 2 cup kale steamed and packed

Crispy Chickpeas:

  • 1 15- ounce can chickpeas drained and rinsed
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 3/4 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder

Tahini Sauce:

  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 2 Tbsp. maple syrup
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp. water


For the bowl:

  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Place sweet potatoes and onions on baking sheet. Toss with 1 Tbsp. of the coconut oil.
  • Bake for 10 minutes, remove baking sheet from oven, toss vegetables, and add the broccoli. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Bake for another 10 minutes, remove from oven, toss vegetables, and add the kale. Bake for another 5 minutes and set aside.

For the crispy chickpeas:

  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat.
  • In a small bowl, toss chickpeas with cumin, chili powder, and garlic.
  • Add 1 Tbsp of oil. to pan. Once hot, add the chickpea mixture. Fry chickpeas until they are dark golden and crispy—about 10 minutes. Set aside.

For the tahini sauce:

  • In a small bowl, whisk together tahini, maple syrup, lemon juice, and 1 Tbsp. of the water. If mixture is too thick, add the second Tbsp. to thin.
  • For serving:
  • Add the roasted vegetables to individual bowls, top with chickpeas and drizzle with tahini sauce.
  • Leftovers will keep refrigerated in airtight container for up to 3 days—though best served fresh.
