Roasted Chickpea Sweet Potato Salad with Greek Yogurt Dressing


  1. Preheat oven to 400F/200C.
  2. Prepare the spice mix. In a small bowl, combine all the spices (cumin, sweet paprika, coriander, garlic powder, salt and cinnamon). Set aside.
  3. Place sweet potato cubes in the middle of a baking sheet, drizzle with 1 tablespoon olive oil and sprinkle with about 3 teaspoons of spice mix. Toss thoroughly to coat sweet potatoes on all sides (I like to use my hands for that!) and spread them on baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes.
  4. While the sweet potatoes are baking, prepare the dressing. In a bowl, mix together all the dressing ingredients.
  5. Remove baking sheet from the oven, toss the sweet potatoes and set aside a bit to make room for the chickpeas. Drizzle with 1/2 tablespoon olive oil, sprinkle with remaining spices (about 2 teaspoons) and toss to coat (not with your hands this time, it’s too hot!). Bake for 10 more minutes.
  6. Remove baking sheet for the oven, mix together the sweet potatoes and chickpeas and let cool a bit while you finish preparing the salad.
  7. Place torn kale leaves in a large salad/serving bowl, drizzle with half the dressing and toss thoroughly until every bit of kale is well coated. Top with sweet potatoes and chickpeas, and drizzle nicely with the remaining half of the dressing. Serve and enjoy!
