Serves 4-6

Ingredients

Salad Ingredients
  • 2 cups spinach
  • 2 cups kale
  • 1 raw beet, grated
  • 1 cup carrots, shredded
  • 1 cup cucumber, sliced into half moons
  • 1/2 red onion, sliced thinly
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 1 can chickpeas, drained & rinsed
  • curry powder

  • Dressing Ingredients
  • 3 tbsp hummus
  • 2 lemons, juiced
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tbsp cilantro or parsley, chopped


  • Bake the Chickpeas

    Drain and rinse one can of chickpeas and spread them out on a silicon baking mat on a cookie sheet. Sprinkle some curry powder over the top and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

    Grate the Beet

    You can use either a golden or red beet for this. Note, if you are using a red beet your hands will turn very pink, but it'll wash out! Using a cheese grater, grate the beet on the largest holes carefully! Watch your fingers at the end.

    Combine

    In a large bowl combine the rest of the salad ingredients and toss gently.

    The Dressing

    In a bowl or container with a lid, combine all the dressing ingredients together and mix vigorously until the hummus has dissolved. Pour over the salad and enjoy!
