  • Pinch of salt & some water to loosen if necessary.
  • Shake all the dressing ingredients in the jar & allow to sit whilst you prepare the salad.


Preheat your oven to 180 & line 2 baking trays with baking paper.

Place the drained chickpeas on a tray (they don’t have to be dry) & place in the oven for 10 minutes before removing them.

Once they have roasted for 10 minutes, drizzle with EVOO, tamari & spices. Mixing gently with a spatula before returning to the oven for a further 20~25 minutes to turn golden & crispy.

Meanwhile, place the beetroot & carrot on the other tray, drizzle with EVOO, maple & salt (measure these with your heart) & toss to combine. Roast in the oven for 35~40 minutes until beautifully tender & beginning to caramelise.

Allow the chickpeas & roast root vegetables to cool slightly before assembling the salad. Drizzle generously with the tahini dressing & serve !

Keeps well in the fridge for up to 2 days once dressed 👌🏼
