Easter is officially over and I for one am glad! We hit the eggs and hot cross buns hard in our house and now I’m ready to eat ALL THE VEGGIES! Starting with this Sweet Potato, Chickpea and Feta Salad. This salad is a clean out the vegetable crisper special but it just worked so well I knew I had to share it with you guys ASAP!

- 1/4 tsp Cumin
- 1/8 tsp Cayenne Pepper
Sweet Potato Spice Mix
- 1/2 tsp Paprika
- 1/4 tsp Cayenne Pepper
- Preheat oven to 180C / 350F & line baking tray with baking paper
- Place sweet potato in a bowl and cover with sweet potato spice mix 1/2 tbsp olive oil. Mix well with your hands, then spread out onto baking tray, leaving room for chickpeas.
- Place chickpeas in the same bowl, cover with chickpea spice mix and 1/2 tbsp olive oil. Mix well, then place onto tray with sweet potatoes.
- Put tray in oven for 20-25 minutes, flipping sweet potatoes halfway through, and shaking the tray a few times to move the chickpeas around.
- Dress the lettuce with 1/2 tsp of olive oil, salt and pepper. Assemble the rest of the salad ingredients including the roasted sweet potato and chickpeas and serve immediately.
- I used canned chickpeas for this recipe. I rinsed the chickpeas, removed the skins, then laid them on top of paper towel and lightly pat them dry with another piece of paper towel. Try and get the chickpeas as dry as possible - this will help make them crispy!
