Roasted Kale & Chickpea Salad

Serves: 4

This satisfying vegetable bowl is packed with crunch and color, thanks to the addition of crispy carrots and chickpeas, fresh kale and a shimmering avocado topping. It also offers your daily dose of fiber, which is key to losing weight and maintaining energy and healthy digestion. Bulgur, also called broken wheat, is a quick-cooking whole grain. And these bowls make great lunches too!



3 cups boiling water
½ cup bulgur
2 (15-oz.) cans unsalted chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1½ tbsp. canola oil
2 cups finely chopped carrots
4 cups chopped lacinato kale
½ cup sliced shallots
½ cup fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
½ tsp. kosher salt, divided
½ tsp. black pepper
½ avocado, peeled and pitted
2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
1 tbsp. tahini (sesame seed paste), well stirred
1 clove garlic
¼ tsp. ground turmeric



1. Combine the water and bulgur and cook 14-18 minutes or until tender, drain well and set aside to cool.
2. Pat the chickpeas dry with paper towels. Heat the canola oil in a large skillet over high heat. Add the chickpeas and carrots and cook, stirring occasionally, until chickpeas are browned, about 6 minutes. Add the kale, cover, and cook until the kale is slightly wilted and carrots are tender, about 2 minutes. Add the chickpea mixture, shallots, parsley, ¼ teaspoon of the salt, and the pepper to the bulgur; toss to combine.
3. In a food processor, process the avocado, olive oil, lemon juice, tahini, garlic, turmeric and remaining ¼ teaspoon salt until smooth. Divide the bulgur mixture among 4 bowls and drizzle each serving evenly with the avocado mixture.
