Spinach Salad with Roasted Vegetables and Spiced Chickpea

If you have time to let the patted chickpeas air-dry for an additional 15 to 30 minutes, they will turn especially crisp in the oven, sizzling in the olive oil that coats them.

  • Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 15 ounce can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 2 large sweet potatoes (1 1/4 pounds), peeled and cut into 1-inch
  • 2 medium carrots (1/2 pound), peeled and sliced 1/4-inch thick
  • 8 tablespoon(s) extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon(s) kosher salt, as needed
  • Black pepper, as needed
  • 2 thyme sprigs
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) ground cumin
  • 1 clove(s) garlic, minced
  • 1/3 cup(s) plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 teaspoon(s) fresh lemon juice
  • 5 ounce(s) spinach (6 cups)
  • 2 tablespoon(s) thinly sliced shallot

Preparation

Method

1. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with a clean dishtowel or several layers of paper towels and spread drained chickpeas evenly on top. Pat dry with another dishtowel or paper towels.

2. Toss sweet potato and carrots with 2 tablespoons oil and season with 3/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Spread on a large rimmed baking sheet and top with thyme sprigs. Roast, tossing occasionally, until golden-brown and very tender, 40 to 50 minutes.

3. While vegetables are roasting, toss chickpeas with 2 tablespoons oil, chili powder, cumin and a large pinch of salt. Spread on another rimmed baking sheet. Transfer to the oven 10 minutes after you’ve put in the potatoes and carrots; roast until crisp and golden brown, 30 to 40 minutes.

4. Using the flat side of a knife or a mortar and pestle, mash the garlic with a large pinch of salt until it forms a paste. Add it to a small bowl and whisk in yogurt and lemon juice. Slowly whisk in remaining 4 tablespoons (1/4 cup) oil. Season with salt and pepper.

5. In a large bowl, combine spinach, roasted vegetables, chickpeas and shallot. Toss with enough dressing to lightly coat vegetables and greens and serve at once.
