Spiced Roasted Chickpea Pitas with Quick Pickled Kohlrabi and Tahini Drizzle



Serves at least 2

For the chickpeas:
2 15-oz. cans chickpeas, or equivalent amount cooked yourself
2 Tbsps. olive oil
2 tsps. ground coriander
1/2 tsp. cumin
1 pinch red pepper flakes (optional)
1 healthy squirt Sriracha (optional) if you don’t like it spicy you could add 1 clove or garlic grated instead.
Salt to taste

For the kohlrabi:
1/2 bunch of green onions, sliced on a bias or 1 small to medium red onion (Candy knob are my favorite!) sliced thin
2 medium to large kohlrabi, peeled and julienne
1 Tbsp. honey, or sweetener of choice
1 cup apple cider or rice wine vinegar
1 Tbsp. salt
1 cup water

For the tahini drizzle:
Juice of 1 1/2 lemons
1/8 cup olive oil
1/8 cup tahini
Salt and pepper to taste

Parsley or cilantro for garnish

Mix all of the kohlrabi ingredients together and refrigerate for at least 1 hour (overnight is best). Drain before serving.

Preheat oven to 400. Mix chickpeas, olive oil, spices, hot sauce and salt. Spread into single layer on a cookie sheet and bake until crispy, about 20-30 minutes turning a couple of times.

Add all tahini drizzle ingredients together in a jar and shake until combined. (Make extra – this is great as salad dressing or veggie dip too!)

To assemble, add chickpeas to pita, top with pickled kohlrabi and tahini drizzle. Garnish with herbs if desired.
