Salad 

1. Place chickpeas in air fryer (or oven) and sprinkle desired amounts

of paprika, garlic powder, rosemary, and salt. Cook for 15-20

minutes or until crispy. Optional: remove skin of chickpeas for

ultimate crunch, though it is a tedious process.

2. Rinse and tear kale and lettuce. Place in a large bowl and squeeze

juice of half a lemon and a sprinkle of salt. Toss and combine well.

3. Add in crunchy chickpeas, hemp seeds, and a sprinkling of vegan

Parmesan. Drizzle 2-3 tsp of dressing per handful of greens to avoid

over saturating the salad.

Serves 2-3
