This genius chickpea salad recipe uses the olive oil you bake the chickpeas in as part of the flavorful tahini dressing. We love heirloom black chickpeas for this. They create a beautiful contrast with the pita and are much more flavorful than their beige cousins.

 

INGREDIENTS

FOR THE CHICKPEAS:
  • 4 cups cooked chickpeas (black chickpeas will be a striking and flavorful choice)
  • ¾ to 1 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin, or 1 teaspoon each ground cumin and ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • Salt and pepper

DIRECTIONS

  1. Make the chickpeas: Heat oven to 425 degrees. Pour the chickpeas into a small baking dish, about 6 inches by 8 inches. The chickpeas should be crowded together in a thick layer, not spread out. Pour in olive oil just until chickpeas are covered. (This will look like a lot, but don’t worry: It forms part of the dressing.)
  2. Add garlic, cumin, paprika, and 2 big pinches each of salt and pepper. Stir gently to combine. Bake until oil is bubbling around the chickpeas and they are turning reddish-brown, 35 to 40 minutes. Set aside to cool.
