chickpea stuffed peppers


Step 1.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. In a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring often until softened, about 5 minutes. Transfer the onion mixture to a bowl.

Step 2.
Add chickpeas, cumin, coriander, 1/4 cup parsley, and 1 tablespoon of olive oil to the bowl; season with salt and pepper and toss to combine. Arrange bell peppers in a baking dish and fill them with chickpea mixture. Roast until peppers are tender, about 30 minutes.

Step 3.
Meanwhile, toss tomatoes and cucumbers with balsamic, lemon zest and the remaining 2 tablespoons of parsley and 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Serve peppers topped with tomato salad and drizzled with tahini.

Hint: You can also substitute Olivezia Garlic Olive Oil for the Gremolata.
