Video recipe:

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 10 minutes

Total time: 20 minutes

Servings: 2



🌱2 beetroots (or 20 small beetroot slices)

🌱250 g canned chickpeas

🌱1/2 tsp smoked paprika

🌱1/2 tsp coriander

🌱1/2 tsp cumin

🌱1/2 tsp garlic powder

🌱1/2 tsp granulated onion

🌱Salt & pepper to taste

🌱Fresh parsley

🌱Tahini (ingredients below)

🌱Harissa (see prep method down the page)

How to prepare:

  1. Let’s start with the Tahini! You’ll need:

🌱5 Tbsp Tahini sauce

🌱2 garlic clove

🌱Juice from a lemon

🌱50 ml water

🌱6 Tbsp plant-based yogurt

🌱Salt to taste

How to prepare it: 

  • Mix the tahini sauce with the lemon juice. You will obtain a thick paste
  • Dilute the paste with some water. Add it gradually and keep mixing until you obtain a thinner paste
  • Add the minced garlic, the plant-based yogurt, season with salt and mix well. 
  1. Next, the chickpeas: heat up some olive oil in a pan, add the chickpeas, season with smoked paprika, coriander, cumin, garlic powder, granulated onion, salt and pepper, mix well and cook for about 4-5 minutes until golden brown
  2. When the chickpeas are ready, mix them with some chopped fresh parsley
  3. Last but not least: the beetroot! For this recipe we used pickled sliced beetroot and we simply roasted a few slices on both sides in a little bit of olive oil. 

Harissa is a must for this recipe! It will bing together nicely all the tastes and it will give your dish a flavoursome boost. Here’s 2 ways to prepare it:

  1. If you are using harissa paste, simply mix 2 Tbsp of paste with 2 Tbsp of water to dilute the sauce nicely.
  2. If you are using harissa spice, mix 2 Tbsp harissa spice with 2 Tbsp olive oil and add some salt to taste.

🌱To serve: On a large plate, add the Tahini as a base layer, add the cooked chickpeas over the tahini, then top everything with a few delicious beetroot slices and pour a few harissa drops over everything.
