Ingredients

Chickpea Leek Salad

  • 2 15-ounce cans chickpeas, drained and peeled
  • 1 cup farro, cooked
  • 2 large leeks, peeled and sliced
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon za'atar seasoning
  • ¼ cup dried cranberries, chopped
  • ¼ cup cilantro, finely chopped

Za'atar Dressing

  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 3 whole garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 whole lemon, juice and zest

Instructions 

Salad Instructions

  • Bake chickpeas: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Toss chickpeas, cooked farro, and sliced leeks with olive oil, za'atar, and salt and spread on an oiled sheet pan. Bake for about 25-35 minutes (depending on your oven), stirring every 10 minutes to ensure evenly roasted. Remove when chickpeas are dry and leeks and farro are lightly browned.
  • Toss salad: Let cool 5-10 minutes and then transfer to large bowl and toss with chopped cranberries, cilantro, and desired amount of dressing.

Dressing Instructions

  • Mix dressing ingredients: Combine all ingredients in a small food processor and pulse until well blended.
  • Optional: If you find the dressing is too tart, add a very small amount of sugar (or honey, agave, etc.) to taste. The sugar will balance the salt and lime acidity.

Notes

  • Leftovers + storage: This salad will keep up to a week in the refrigerator and can be served warm or cold.
  • Nutrition notes: This recipe is high in plant-based protein, a great source of fiber, and provides heart healthy fats. It's a super filling salad that can be eaten as a dinner entrée or a side item.
