What you need:
1 pound small red potatoes, cut in half
2 teaspoons olive oil
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper
1 (15-ounce) can chickpeas
6 cups baby kale
1 cup steamed green beans
¼ cup pitted kalamata olives
½ cup cherry tomatoes, halved
¼ cup Italian dressing
What you do:
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. On a baking sheet, toss potatoes with olive oil, salt, and pepper.
- Drain and rinse chickpeas and pat dry with paper towels. Spread dried chickpeas on a separate baking sheet. Place in oven with potatoes and bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven. Place chickpeas in a medium bowl and smash with a fork.
