Roasted Vegetable Salad with Crispy Chickpeas
1½ cups (246 g)cooked chickpeas
2 tsp (10 mL)vegetable oil
1 Tbsp (9 g)burrito seasoning
Roasted vegetables & salad base
4medium potatoes, cut into 1 cm cubes
4carrots, cut into 1 cm pieces
6cloves garlic, unpeeled
2 Tbsp (30 mL)vegetable oil
1 Tbsp (9 g)burrito seasoning
2medium onions, cut into wedges
6 cups (180 g)fresh spinach
Mashed pea yogurt sauce
1 cup (134 g)frozen green peas
1 cup (240 mL)unsweetened soy yogurt†
¼ tspsalt, or more if desired
¼ tspground black pepper
Serves well with
- Preheat the oven to 430°F (220°C). Add the chickpeas to a lined baking tray, drizzle over the oil, and the burrito spice seasoning. Toss to coat.
- To a separate large lined baking tray, add the potatoes, carrots, unpeeled garlic, oil, and burrito seasoning. Toss to coat. Roast both trays for 20 minutes.
- Meanwhile, place the frozen peas in a medium bowl and cover them with plenty of boiling water. Let sit for 10 minutes.
- Remove the trays from the oven and stir. To the veggie tray, add the onion wedges. Return the trays to the oven with their positions swapped, and roast for an additional 15 - 25 minutes, or until cooked to your liking.
- Drain the peas and mash with a fork, then add the yogurt, salt, and pepper to the peas and mix.
- When the roasted garlic is cool enough to handle, peel and mash the cloves with a fork. Add this to the yogurt sauce. Mix. For a smoother consistency, blend the yogurt sauce with an immersion blender, although this is optional. Taste test and add more salt if desired.
- To assemble, divide the spinach between bowls. Top with the roasted veggies and chickpeas. Add a dollop of the pea yogurt sauce before digging in. Enjoy!
- †Nutrition tip: aim to use plant-based yogurt/milk (choose one) that is fortified with calcium.
- The assembled salad is best enjoyed immediately.
- The roasted vegetables and yogurt dressing can be stored separately in airtight containers in the fridge for up to 4 days.
- The chickpeas can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge or at room temperature for up to 3 days. Note, they will likely lose their crispiness if not enjoyed immediately. To make re-crispy, simply toast in the oven for a few minutes if desired.

I made this the other day, the recipe was easy to follow, and we enjoyed every bite ☺️
I put veggies and chickpeas in the same tray, and they baked just fine. The pea sauce is amazing, we had a leftover for the day after and we used it as a spread 😀 This recipe is also great for little ones, my one year old loved it ❤️
I tried this because I saw that it was inexpensive and was surprised at how good it tasted. Will definitely be making this regularly from now on.
Tasty! Easy to follow and easy to prepare!
oh my god, the way I SEVERELY underestimated how good a salad can get! I had quite a few carrots and kale nearing their expiry date. I made a batch of 2, had one serving for lunch and immediately had another serving few hours later - it was THAT good! I substituted frozen edamame for the green peas (used a hand blender) and kale for the spinach - and it was such a burst of flavours and textures! Definitely going on rotation!
So delicious! I'd been wanting to make this forever and hadn't gotten around to it until recently. This was actually the first recipe of PUL I'd seen since it's the first that comes up in this video; the PUL video that YT had put in my "suggested's" :) It's seriously the perfect balance of textures between the crunchy chickpea croutons and the oven roasted veggies, and it makes eating salad (something I don't always enjoy) much more fun and delicious. Also, the vegan pea yogurt is so good that now I sometimes make that part alone just to have on hand for a dip or salad dressing.
Great recipe! I make this often when I have lots of leftover vegetables like bell peppers, leek, zucchini and carrots. These vegetables work great in this recipe. Most of the time I do swap the pea yoghurt sauce for a generous drizzle of tahini, both out of convenience and personal preference :)
I made this last night, but in 30 min, not in 55 min.
The potoes and carrots were cooked in my oven in 25 min.
The recipe is great and cheap. Thank you for sharing, we loved it.
This recipe is so simple yet so delicious and filling! Thank you so much.
I made it for dinner tonight for my boyfriend - everything was gone in under 5 minutes. :D
Also, I added some lemon juice to the dressing for a bit of zestiness.
5/5 would recommend
My favourite meal I cook for myself. So delicious. So easy. So cheap. I usually put it all in a tortilla wrap and have it for lunch. I do a huge batch on Monday and then I'm sorted for quick meal in-between classes. I send this recipe to anyone who tells me they're looking for new ones - thank you!!
Notes to myself: I made it twice now. In Oct 2022 and Nov 1,2022. Mostly because it’s easy to cook. First time roasted chickpeas too much, they became hard. Second time no chickpeas, just veggies. Very good both times. Like the pea sauce. Would be better if I blended it. But good enough hand mashed as well. Adding salt made it deeper flavor.
Just made this and it was absolutely delicious- yet so simple! Only alteration was that I added some rice just to make it a little filling. 10/10
This salad is simply delicious. I just recently stumbled over your Youtube Channel and this was the first recipe I tried. I served it with a bunch of your Ranch Potatoes (and my bf loooved the Ranch Dressing :-D)
Your recipes all look so delicious and I can't wait to try out even more. We're not vegan, but I'm trying to cook vegan more and more.
And thumbs up for your beautiful website. What I really dislike the most about using cooking recipes on Websites is, that most websites talk about how awesome and yummy this recipe is in about 10000 words, before actually writing down the recipe. That's not the case on your website. We only get the information we actually need for cooking. Thank you SO much for this!
Please keep up the good work!
Love it! I ran out of spinach , so used kale instead. Didn’t wanna wait until I get hold of all the ingredients from the recipe list, so I roasted sweet potatoes, onions and parsnip which I had at home. It turned out so good! Never thought of using green peas as part of my dressing. Everything was perfect! Thank you for sharing this recipe ❤️
I absolutely love this recipe!
It is very easily made and lets me use up all of my left over veggies of the week and I also just love how versatile this dish is.
I made this for lunch yesterday and really enjoyed it. I added some white beets that I wanted to use up to the roasted veggies and used white beans instead of chickpeas as I didn’t have those (I only realised when I started cooking 🙈). The only very small downside for me was that my peas were somehow still too firm to be mashed properly after the recommended soaking time, so my “sauce” was more yoghurt with peas 😆 A really nice dish though, I do recommend it 😊
Hello from the UK!
I've been following you for a little while, but this is the first recipe that I have tried making. I couldn't find burrito seasoning in our supermarket, so I used Taco seasoning instead. I found this very easy to make and it was delicious, even my husband (a meat eater) liked it. I will definitely be making this again.
I especially liked the budget friendly video that this recipe came from because it contains all the food that you need to buy, with no items being wasted. I have made all the recipes in this video and they will now form part of my two weekly meal planner. PLEASE MAKE MORE OF THESE VIDEOS. My daughter and I are vegetarians, but everyone in our family have a dairy intolerance, so eating a vegan diet is much better for us and makes making vegan meals makes it so much easier for me to cook and keep everyone happy. So, thank you so much :).
Thank you! It was so delicious! The pea-yogurt is amazing!! I'm planning to go thrue all "vegan budget challenge" this week because I made new healthy eating decision.. you are really big influence to me, and I want to thank you for you ;) and everything you do! From the bottom of my heart!
I have made this several times, always foolproof! The delicious and simple flavors combined turns into a light but filling and delicious meal. Love!
The pea-yogurt dressing is so good paired with the veggies and chickpeas. Really satisfying and nourishing!
Made this for lunch and dinner yesterday, some salt to the veggies made them golden!!! It seems like every time I have parsley it doesnt work out for me, but the sauce of this recipe is divine, i would never have though the combo would work but wow, loved this salad. Thanks PUL for your amazing recipes!
Making it for lunch...haven't tried it yet...Excited about trying the dressing peas. Thanks
Thank you for detailed description
Just made this for lunch, my partner and I absolutely loved it! I was unsure if the pea dressing/sauce would be to my taste, but it was yummy especially with the warm roasted veg :) I used my Nutribullet to blend up the sauce quickly (was in a rush!)
I made this for tonight/lunch tomorrow and wow, this is delicious. The veggies + roasted chickpeas combo is brilliant but I especially love the Mashed pea yogurt sauce! (but I'm going to make three meals with two servings lol. The size of my plate right now, I love it so much, but I'm not going to reach the bottom ;D )
You guys are absolutely inspiring. I really loved your series on Afghan meals. Thank you for sharing all of this. For vegans or vegetarians around the world (in this case Quebec Canada), it's really helpful and time saving! Merci!
The sweet vegetables and savory spices together are perfect. I added some avocado and lime.
Just made this, absolutely delicious! Especially the yoghurt peas dressing. I added some garlic to this for some extra kick ;) thanks for the recipe!
This salad was absolutely incredible, the combination of flavours are amazing ! 😍
Two things, first thank you for the budget friendly meals. They are really helping at the moment and I’m slowly working my way through your collection.
Secondly- yum! I made this today and loved it. I’ve never cooked a warm salad like that before. I’ve never made a yogurt dressing like that before. And I’ve never made roasted chick peas before. Will be doing all of the above again in future!
I made this today and it was absolutely delicious! I had never made a salad like this before, I will definitely do this on a weekly basis. Thank you so much!
Made this one four times now, with young spinach and several different lettuce, and also with frozen green beans in the sauce instead of the peas. Can say it has changed my view on salads and chickpeas. The combination of warm roasted vegetables and cold spinach leaves + creamy sauce is wonderful. The caramelized garlic : yum ! I discovered crispy chickpeas, it's so good ! By the way, I kept some in a jar for two days and they stayed crispy :) Not in another container, though :(
Thank you especially for all the ideas to make it quick and easy to cook : the use of burrito/tacos sachets mixes to roast, boiling water in a kettle and cooking the frozen peas in a bowl instead of in a sauce pan, and all the affordable ingredients... This one made me want to cook again and explore your blog. So thank you, from my family and my belly ;P (not a native speaker so sorry for the mistakes)
I just made it for the first time - loved it!
Hi I am from India! Here we wash and boil every veggie we use as food. The spinach that you guys use looks way more clean and fresh compared to what we get here in our local market! Should we boil spinach before we use it as salad? or just wash them thoroughly and use them directly! I am a little confused here as to boiling will ruin the taste or not? 'Cause i want to make all your salad recipes as they look very healthy and tasty
This is legit the best salad I've ever made!
I did not have peas and made the sauce with avocado but the melange of textures, colors and taste of the meal is just amazing and it looks so beautiful. A must do, thank you !
3rd meal of the challenge - and it was a great salad that I would definitely make again and again! However, I absolutely could not eat the pea yogurt sauce. The garlic flavour didn't really come through and it just had a very strong flavour of sour yogurt and peas. It didn't mix well. Luckily I had some leftover hummus. Other than that, can't really complain on such a cheap budget!
This video ticks every box when making affordable wegan food.Thank you about these delicious recipes.
Absolutely amazing! I had watched the video for this recipe a while ago, and I finally got the chance to make it last night and it was wonderful. I had never thought about roasting chickpeas and they work so well with the sweet roasted vegetables. I made a dressing with avocado, since I had to use them before they went bad, but next time I make this salad, I will definitely try the pea and yoghurt sauce. I'll definitely be making this recipe again, thanks for sharing it!
My boyfriend made this salad and it the best I have ever eaten! The pea dip is amazing, everything together is delicious. I could eat it everyday all day long. Thank you for the recipe and keep up your wonderful work
Absolutely delicious! Probably one of the best salads I’ve ever eaten! I subbed the potato for parsnip and added my own sautéed mushrooms as well. The Mexican flavours were amazing and I would definitely eat this again. 10/10!
Loved it soooo much!
Made this salad couple of days ago for my family. My parents are not someone who enjoys salads. But with this salad they really liked it.
In fact they helped themselves with extra servings of the salad : ) The sauce was a great hit too. Thank you for the recipe PUL ♡
where i live in canada we don't have burrito spice mix, only taco and fajitas. Tried it with taco spice, it was horrible had to trash it. i'll try it without spice next time.
My first recipe from your channel and it was absolutely amazing. Looking forward to tomorrows recipe, patties I think. I'm doing the vegan budget challenge.
I'm making all the recipes in this challenge this week. However, in my part of central Europe the ingredients cost just over €30. Made the tomato soup yesterday - delicious. Looking forward to trying this tonight!
Your recipes are just amazing. Really simple yet very tasty. I tried your Afgan meals and now I feel I have to try all of your recipes .
Please keep posting wonderful recipes !!
I love your recipes. Delicious!
Amazing recipe! Full of flavors, and so nutritious. Thank you guys <3
WOW! Another PUL hit! For me it's a week before an important event so I'm trying to eat lean - and this salad is the perfect blend of flavorful, healthy and filling. Highly recommend!
This was absolutely delicious! My only regret is not making more of it. I’m endlessly grateful to Pick Up Limes for continuing to make delicious and nutritious recipes. They really have helped me redefine my diet and branch out to try new things.
Thank you for a wonderful recipe! I used Oatly's creme fraiche instead of soy yoghurt. Worked fine :)
This was amazing! I couldn't find soy yogurt and bought coconut yogurt which was not a great flavour but it still worked.
As usual super nice dish. I doubled the amount of potatoes tough. I doubt, we would have been satisfyingly full of I hadn't done that.
I mean we did a 6 hrs hike uphill that day but still..
Added chicken for the husband.
I loved this recipe! It's a great choice if you're looking to meal prep. I took this to work, and because I was afraid to spill it, I skipped the sauce and used olive oil and balsamic vinegar from the work's kitchen, and it was amazing like that as well. So grateful for the PUL team, sending you love!
We made this for dinner tonight! I wasn't really expecting to like it (because I don't like peas) But HOLY MOLY is this tasty!! Will be keeping it in our regular dinner rotation for sure! We made our meal plan this week following the PUL Budget video that this was in. So far every PUL recipe is a hit! Keep up the great work!
I'm on a budget this month and my boyfriend still hasn't found out because it doesn't feel like I'm cutting back on anything thanks to these recipes. He hadn't noticed that we're vegan now either :D We loved the salad so much, I was just getting slightly bored with the usual summer salads. Awesome fall transition! Thanks Sadia!
I tried this recipe and LOVED it! We are in the U.S. and almost exclusively shop at the store Trader Joe's. They don't have vegan yogurt, so I modified the recipe slightly by adding their vegan cream cheese, lemon juice, a little vinegar, and a tiny bit of olive oil as a substitution. It turned out so well! I used a food processor, and the mashed peas and vegan cream cheese mixture ended up tasting almost like an avocado cream! I also threw some peeled garlic in with the roasted root veggies, which I left out of the sauce, to give it some extra garlic-y flavor. A yummy and surprisingly filling meal! Thank you!
Having a low budget week so I'm going to be cooking from your Vegan Budget Challenge and I'm pretty excited! This was my first recipe from it and man... It was soo good! Another salad dressing I will be making again and again! I always get quite bored around the first few months of the year when my local farm gives me tons of potatoes, onions and carrots and that's a brilliant new way of using them! (I also have a very old oven so the timing and temperature was perfect for me)
Lovely combo value meal
Nutritious, delicious and easy recipe to follow :)
I am a huge fan of oven roasted veggies so this salad really hits the spot! You really nailed the pea and garlic yogurt dressing too! I imagine this dressing would go well with other recipes too. I will certainly be returning to this salad for future budget friendly meals. 😁🙌🏻
Yum yum yum!!!!
Excited to try this!!
Would plain Greek yogurt work instead of almond or coconut yogurt?
This was absolutely delicious! I made it for my husband and I for lunch today and we both loved it. I have extras leftover for tomorrow and I'm really excited about that!
This recipe is soooo good! The sauce is so creamy, garlicky and just absolutely delicious! I used the entire can of chickpeas (540 ml) and I personally didn’t feel like I had too much. I also used a little more spice mix and oil to compensate. This means I wasn’t left with a partly used can.
Really basic (and cheap!) ingredients put together in such an interesting way!
Pretty sure each part of this recipe is going to be in regular rotation now (that dressing 👌)
I really like it! Roasted veggies are a classic and that was a good reminder of how much I love them and didn’t realize I missed them.
My favorite part though is this dressing! I love that it is full of protein and is so flavorful and light.
Hi Sadia and team,
I love your channel and recipes! This recipe is delicious! I used 1 elephant garlic clove and everything turned out delicious! Thank you!
I just did this salad. What shall I say, I ate two portions because it was that tasty. I did it with homemade Gyros spice, which was quite nice, too. This Salad has umamy flavour, creamy, crunchy and freshness all together which makes it perfect for me. I even could to some things on the side which is nice, too. I have a vegan low budget book from Sebastin Copien ( here in YouTube too) with terrific low budget recipies, but one always need a lot of time and at least 4 pots and pans at the same time. Which makes it really tiresome.
This one has needs little effort but has great impact in taste.
What I like as well ,is that when I do it at home it looks the same as when you do it. What you see is what you get. That counts for all your recepies.
What I wish for in futur recipies is more diverse spice.
See, a lot is basicly Garlic, onions, Curry spice of some sort Tomatoes, peppers etc. Which is nice, but I like some difference in spice, too. Creamy, white Sauce and different flavours from the usual.
Aspargus, Kohlrabie, Mairübchen are veggies, too sorry I don't know the words in english. Finer, milder tastes and Kombination of different fresh herbs. You and your team will find something and it will be delicious I am sure!
I tried this recipe just yesterday and it was so yum! Needless to say how good the whole flat smelled :) I did mix the spices myself (4 tbsp
chili powder, 1 tbsp salt, 1 tsp cumin, 1 tsp white pepper, 1 tsp oregano, 1 tsp garlic and onion powder, 1 tsp paprika and 1/2 tsp coriander powder) and it turned out amazing. The peas in the sauce also added an interesting (good) flavor but I think I'll try it with tzatziki and a couple more cloves of garlic next time.
Hi, just wanted to let you know that the recipe for the Mexican spice mix (under the toggle listing alternatives for the Burrito spice mix) redirects to the link to this recipe, the roasted vegetable salad, instead of the recipe for the Mexican spice mix!
And this recipe is epic! I love these series and watching your videos in general! Please keep up the incredible work :)
This was delicious! Although none of the ingredients are ones I would consider "favorites" of mine, together it is perfectly balanced: sweet, savory, crunchy, soft. Chef's kiss. My boyfriend and I had this for dinner and have enough leftover for lunch tomorrow. Also, as other commenters have said, the cook time of the chickpeas can be reduced by about 1/3. Thanks Sadia and team!
Wat hebben jullie een leuke website en youtube kanaal. Deze week ontdekt en ik ben fan! Vandaag bovenstaade maaltijd bereid en het was heerlijk! Alleen zijn de kikkererwten na 20 minuten precies goed. Ik zou de extra 25 minuten voor de kikkererwten in het recept aanpassen. Deze extra minuten zijn zeker niet nodig.
Definitely doesn't need so much time in the oven, not at that temp at least. And definitely not 4 portions out of this!!! The result is very good though. The sauce is amazing
Hey Sadia and team, love your channel and recipes! This was delicious, only suggestion would be to do the chickpeas for 5-10 minutes less as mine came out quite burnt.
Looks amazing, definitely going to try it. Any suggestions for an alternative to peas in the sauce? I just don't like peas...
Just made this! Fantastic! Tasty, nutritious and for someone who doesn't really enjoy cooking, easy to make. Thank you Sadia. This has now been added to my limited repertoire. :-)
I cooked this according to instructions and the vegetables and chickpeas were so burnt I had to throw most of them away, I've never had this happen when following a recipe. I like the idea of the salad and planning meals on a budget but this did not work.
This looks amazing!! Gonna try it ASAP!
This sounds so good! I want to give it a try :) Btw the new website layout looks AWESOME!
Recipe looks amazing, can't wait to try it. Also just wanted to compliment you on the changes you made to the website, makes it a lot easier to cook!
Super tasty! I have enjoyed it very much. You’ve outdone yourself again Sadia! ❤️
