  • 1 (14 oz.) can of drained chickpeas
  • ½ English cucumber, diced into small pieces
  • 2 roma tomatoes, diced into small pieces
  • ¼ cup kalamata olives, diced
  • ¼ cup roasted red peppers (canned)
  • ¼ cup diced marinated artichokes (canned)
  • Splash of olive oil
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • ½ cup feta cheese
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tbsp avocado oil
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp cayenne
  • ¼ tsp oregano
  • ¼ tsp salt

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. In a bowl, add the drained chickpeas. To the bowl, add the avocado oil, garlic powder, cayenne, oregano and ¼ tsp salt. Mix to combine.
  2. Spread the seasoned chickpeas out evenly on a baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes, flipping halfway until the chickpeas are crispy.
  3. In the meantime, while the chickpeas are roasting, dice the English cucumber, tomatoes, kalamata olives, roasted red peppers, and marinated artichokes.
  4. In a bowl, add the diced cucumber, Roma tomatoes, kalamata olives, splash of olive oil, juice of ½ of a lemon. Mix to combine. Add salt to taste. Allow this to marinate in the refrigerator while you get everything else prepared.
  5. Next, steam the bag of Bako Sweet Japanese Sweet Potatoes.
  6. Remove and let cool. Slice them open gently, making sure you don’t slice them in half fully and you can still stuff them properly.
  7. Add 1-2 tbsp of the Mediterranean vegetables to the sweet potato to “stuff” it. Garnish with the roasted chickpeas and feta cheese. If needed, you can add a pinch more salt. Serve as an appetizer!
  8. If you want to eat this meal on your own, place the sweet potato on a plate and drizzle with tahini and a pinch of extra salt. Enjoy!
