Prep time

Cook time



  • 400g can chickpeas, rinsed & drained
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt & pepper, to season
  • 1 sweet potato, peeled & diced
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp herbs (combination thyme & parsley)

  • Tahini Dressing
  • ⅓ cup tahini
  • Juice 1 lemon
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • Pinch salt
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 75mL water

  • To Serve
  • 2 cups brown rice, cooked
  • ¼ purple cabbage, sliced
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • ½ cup edamame
    1 small cucumber, diced
    100g tin corn, rinsed & drained
  • 4 tbsp beetroot hummus


  • Preheat oven to 220ºC. To make the roasted chickpeas, place them on a baking tray and sprinkle with olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Toss to combine and place in the oven.
  • Place the sweet potato on another baking tray and toss with olive oil and herbs. Transfer to the oven and cook for 30 mins or until tender. By this time, the chickpeas should be ready, too.
  • In the meantime, make the tahini dressing by combining the ingredients in a small bowl then whisking until smooth. Add more water as required if the dressing is too thick.
  • Divide the rice into bowls and top with sweet potato, chickpeas, cabbage, avocado, edamame, cucumber, corn and beetroot hummus. Drizzle with the tahini dressing.
