Roasted Sweet Potato and Chickpea Salad

Dinner, Lunch, Vegan

Roasted Sweet Potato and Chickpea Salad is great for lunch or for dinner.  The roasted sliced sweet potatoes and chickpeas were seasoned with a delicious spice combination that packed a nice kick.  I served it with chopped onions on a bed of fresh kale, and drizzled a creamy tahini dressing on top.
