This Roasted Chickpea Salad is packed with nutritious vegetables and protein, perfect for an on-the-go lunch. The vegan ranch dressing is so flavorful!

Ingredients

  • 1 15-ounce can chickpeas
  • 2½ teaspoons salt, divided
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1½ teaspoon onion powder, divided
  • ¾ teaspoon black pepper, divided
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • Dash of cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 5 cups romaine lettuce, chopped
  • 1 cup cucumber, chopped
  • 1 cup carrots, chopped
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
  • ½ cup corn kernels (preferably organic)
  • ½ avocado, chopped
  • For the ranch dressing:
  • 12 ounces soft silken tofu
  • ¼ cup unsweetened almond milk, or other non-dairy milk
  • ¼ cup fresh parsley, roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice (about ½ lemon)
  • 2 tablespoons dried chives
  • 1 tablespoon dried dill
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced (about 1 teaspoon)
  • ½ teaspoon agave nectar

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 425°F. Lightly grease a baking sheet.
  • Drain and rinse the chickpeas. Place onto a kitchen towel; pat dry. In a medium bowl, add chickpeas, 1 teaspoon salt, olive oil, ½ teaspoon onion powder, ¼ teaspoon black pepper, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper (if using); stir until chickpeas are evenly coated. Place on the baking sheet in an even layer; bake for 14-16 minutes, until crunchy.
  • In a large bowl, add lettuce, cucumber, carrots, tomatoes, corn, and avocado. When chickpeas are done, add to the bowl. Stir well; set aside.
  • In a blender or food processor, add tofu, milk, parsley, lemon juice, chives, dill, vinegar, 1½ teaspoons salt, garlic, 1 teaspoon onion powder, ½ teaspoon black pepper, and agave. Blend until smooth.
  • You have two options: add the dressing to the bowl of salad and mix, or store the dressing in a container and add as you eat. The dressing recipe makes 2 cups, so you will probably have some left over.
