  • 1 (15 ounce) can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 cup toasted sliced almonds (can also use chopped roasted almonds)
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 bunch green onions, chopped
  • ¾ cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • For the dressing:
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1/2 large lemon, juiced
  • 3-5 tablespoons warm water, to thin dressing
  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced
  • 1-2 teaspoons pure maple syrup, to sweeten

  • ½ tablespoon freshly grated ginger
  • ½ teaspoon ground turmeric
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper


  1. In a large bowl, add finely chopped broccoli, chickpeas, carrot, cranberries, green onion, and cilantro. Set aside.
  2. Make the dressing by whisking together the following ingredients in a small bowl: tahini, lemon juice, water, garlic, maple syrup, curry powder, ginger, turmeric, salt and pepper. Immediately drizzle over salad and toss to combine. Sprinkle almonds on top and toss a few more times.

Recipe Notes

If you are making this for a party, it most likely serves 6 rather than 4 people.

To toast almonds: Add sliced almonds to a pan and place over medium heat. Use a spatula to stir the almonds; stirring every 30 seconds or so until they are nice and golden brown, about 5 minutes total time. If pan begins to smoke, make sure to reduce the heat to prevent burning.
