  • 1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder

  • ¼ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 cup halved cherry tomatoes

Avocado Crema

  • ½ avocado
  • ¼ cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 lime, juice and zest

  • Rinse and drain chickpeas. Toss in oil, chili powder, cumin, paprika, oregano, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, and salt and pepper. 
  • Place chickpeas and sweet potatoes on a baking sheet. Roast for 45 minutes.
