Kale is rich in protein and fiber. It has a lot of vitamins also. Such as A, B1, B2, B3, B5, And B6. Also folate, vitamin C, E, and K. Kale also provides calcium, iron, and potassium. It makes great plant based salads.
I like to lightly heat up my kale in a frying pan. Use a good quality pan on medium heat to avoid using cooking oils. It’s perfect for this healthy chickpea recipe salad.
Avocados grow on trees that originated in Mexico. The avocado is technically a fruit.
Avocados are very valuable due to their popularity. Avocado trees are partially self pollenating. They are rich in fiber and other nutrients.
Avocados are rich in a variety of vitamins. Including vitamin K, vitamin C, vitamin E, and B vitamins. I love them in this healthy chickpea recipe salad.
Mash up avocado with a fork and lightly season. Salt, pepper, and some nutritional yeast is delicious. Chickpeas are also known as garbanzo beans.

Drain the water from your can of chickpeas. This “juice” is called aquafaba and it has many uses. You will use it for the dressing for this salad. See healthy low calorie dressing instructions below.
Carrots provide protein and fiber. They are rich in Vitamin A and Beta-carotene. Carrots contains a wide variety of nutrients. Walnuts add an extra crunch in an otherwise soft recipe.

This chickpea/kale salad contains a creamy hot mustard dressing. Spicy mustard dressing is a healthy alternative to most sauces. It contains spicy mustard, nutritional yeast, and aquafaba. Aquafaba is simply the water from a can of chickpeas. It’s great for this chickpea recipe vegan.
It is a thick juice that chickpeas have been cooked in. It can mimic the functionality of egg whites in certain recipes. Mustard seeds are ground down into a condiment called mustard.

“Mixing ground mustard seeds with water causes a chemical reaction between two compounds in the seed.” White mustard seeds are used to make mild mustards. It’s the best chickpea recipe vegan salad dressing. I love making these salads for meal prep and weight loss plans.
