Ingredients

Chickpeas and Salad

  • 1 15-oz can chickpeas 425 g
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil 15 mL
  • Seasonings: 1 Tbsp paprika, 1/2 tsp ground black pepper, 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper, 1/4 tsp salt
  • 4 pita flatbreads sliced into wedges
  • 1/4 red onion sliced
  • 2 cups spinach 60 g
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes 150 g, halved

Tzatziki Sauce

  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt 240 g, sub coconut or soy yogurt for vegan alternative
  • 1/2 cup seeded, shredded cucumber 100 g
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice or white wine vinegar 15 mL
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 tsp dried dill
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Chickpeas: Pat dry chickpeas with a paper towel, removing any skins that may come off. Gently toss chickpeas with oil and seasonings. Spread onto a greased rimmed baking sheet and roast at 400 degrees F (204 C) for about 20 minutes, until slightly crispy.
  • Tzatziki: Meanwhile, combine all “Tzatziki” ingredients, seasoning with a pinch of salt and pepper to suit your taste
  • Assemble: Spoon chickpeas evenly into 4 or 5 lunch boxes. Add pita bread wedges, veggies, and sauce (if your boxes do not have separate compartments, store the sauce in a separate container to keep the chickpeas and spinach crisp.)
