  • 1 cup roasted
    chickpeas
  • 1 cup chopped cherry
    tomatoes
  • 1 cup cooked quinoa
  • 4 cups arugula salad
  • ½ cup hummus
  • Oil for cooking
  • Salt and pepper to
    taste

For the roasted chickpeas

  • 1 (15 ounce) can

    chickpeas: heat the oven to 350 F. Toss the chickpeas with coconut oil and

    medium heat until seared on both sides, 2–4 minutes per side. Transfer to a
    plate and prepare the salad.
  3. Whisk together
    tahini, lemon, water, tamari and capers. Pour over arugula and toss to combine.
  4. Prepare two
    bowls, evenly distributing the arugula salad, chickpeas and remaining
    ingredients (including chickpeas). Serve immediately and enjoy!
