  • 3 large handfuls of curly kale

  • Olive oil

  • Schwarz Sea Salt and Black Pepper

  • 1 Tin chickpeas (drained, rinsed and patted dry)

  • 1 teaspoon Garlic Granules

  • 3/4 teaspoon Schwarz Ground Cumin

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 50 grams tahini

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup

  • 1/2 teaspoon Schwartz Garlic Granules

  • 3 tablespoons hot water


  • 1 Preheat the oven to 200C / 400F / Gas Mark 6. Halve the sweet potatoes and chop the red onion into wedges, then transfer to a lined baking tray (ensure that the potatoes are skin-side down). Drizzle with olive oil and place in the oven for 15 minutes.
  • 2 Trim the stems off of the tenderstem broccoli then add after 15 minutes. Drizzle with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and cook for a further 10 minutes.
  • 3 After 10 minutes, flip the sweet potatoes to flesh-side down. Add the kale, drizzling with oil and seasoning with salt and pepper. Cook for a further 5 minutes, then set aside.
  • 4 While the vegetables are roasting, begin preparing the chickpeas. Add the rinsed chickpeas to a bowl and add the Schwartz Garlic Granules, Schwartz Cumin, Schwartz Hot chilli powder and salt and pepper. Stir to combine.
  • 5 Heat a frying pan over medium heat. Once hot, add the oil and chickpeas and cook for 10 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • 6 To make the dressing add the tahini, Schwartz Garlic Granules, lemon juice and maple syrup into a bowl and whisk until combined. Add a tablespoon of hot water at a time to loosen to a pouring consistency.
  • 7 To serve, slice the sweet potatoes into bite sized pieces, and transfer to a bowl. Add the vegetables and chickpeas, then drizzle with the tahini dressing.
