Quinoa Green Goddess Bowl with Crispy Chickpeas and Lemon-Tahini Dressing

Ingredients: 1 15-ounce can chickpeas, drained and rinsed 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil ½ teaspoon smoked paprika ½ teaspoon kosher salt 1 pinch cayenne pepper 1 cup uncooked quinoa ½ seedless cucumber, peeled and diced 1 cup heirloom cherry tomatoes, halved 2 cups packed spinach, finely chopped 1 avocado, diced For the dressing: 1 tablespoon tahini 2 tablespoons warm water Juice of 1 lemon 2 cloves garlic, grated or finely minced ½ teaspoon smoked paprika 1 pinch cayenne pepper 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil Salt Fresh Ground Pepper For Garnish: (optional) Lemon wedges 2 scallions, thinly sliced -Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and set aside. -Start with the chickpeas, friends. Drain and rinse the chickpeas and place them between two paper towels. Gently pat them dry. When you do this, you’ll notice that some of the “skins” on the chickpeas will come loose. That’s a good thing. Just pick off the loose skins and discard them. -Place the chickpeas on the prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with a tablespoon of olive oil and sprinkle with the smoked paprika, salt, and a pinch of cayenne. Toss to coat. -Transfer the baking sheet to the oven and bake for 30-40 minutes until golden and crispy, stirring once after about 15 minutes. The cooking time will vary a little bit depending on the size of your chickpeas, so make sure to check on them after 30 minutes. -While the chickpeas are roasting, cook the quinoa. Pour the quinoa into a small pot with 1½ cups of water and bring it to a boil. Lower the heat to a simmer, cover, and cook for 12-15 minutes until all of the water is absorbed. Let the quinoa rest, still covered, for five minutes, then fluff with a fork and turn it out into a larger bowl to cool to room temperature. (I like to pop the bowl in the fridge to help it cool faster, but I’m impatient like that.) -Moving on to the dressing! In a medium bowl, whisk together the tahini and warm water until smooth. -Add the lemon juice, garlic, smoked paprika, cayenne and olive oil to the tahini and whisk until well combined. Season with salt and fresh ground pepper to taste. -When the quinoa has cooled, add the cucumber, cherry tomatoes, spinach, avocado and half of the cooked chickpeas to the bowl. -Pour the dressing over everything. -Gently fold all of the ingredients together. Taste and season with a little extra salt if necessary. -Serve in bowls topped with the remaining roasted chickpeas and scallions (if using) with lemon wedges on the side.

Pilates, food, and fun.
