Roasted Chickpea and Garlic Caesar Salad Pitas

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes


  • 1 cup chickpeas
  • 1 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder, smoked
  • 1 tbsp turmeric
  • 1 tbsp basil, dried
  • 1 tbsp salt, sea
  • 2 pita bread, whole wheat
  • 6 shrimp, pre-cooked
  • 2 cups kale, chopped (romaine works as well)
  • 3 cloves garlic, halved
  • 2 tbsp Caesar salad dressing, (plus more to taste)


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • In small mixing bowl, combine smoked garlic powder, turmeric, dried basil and sea salt.
  • In another mixing bowl, toss chickpeas in the avocado oil
  • Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of the smoked garlic mixture over the chickpeas and toss, ensuring they are well-coated.
  • Place chickpeas on baking sheet, along with garlic clove halves.
  • Roast for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • When chickpeas are done, remove from oven and set aside.
  • In medium bowl, add kale, shrimp and your desired amount of Caesar dressing.
  • Toss.
  • Take pita and add kale/shrimp mixture
  • Top with chickpeas.


  • The garlic that is roasted with the chickpeas is mainly to help infuse the garlic flavor into the chickpeas. They taste amazing in the pita as well, but are optional.
  • Fresh shrimp would work well too. Simply pat dry, add a little avocado oil to a small skillet and fry the shrimp approximately 1-2 minutes per side or until fully cooked. Sprinkle with sea salt.
