Spiced Chickpea Yogurt Bowls with Spiralized Cucumbers

Can you tell when I was making the recipes for this week, I wanted to use up all the Greek yogurt and cucumbers I bought?

Well, perhaps you bought the same to make yesterday’s egg salad, so today, I’m giving you another way to use up the yogurt and cucumbers!

These easy yogurt bowls are great for those warm summer days when you want something refreshing and flavorful!

I can’t even eat salads that have cubed cucumbers anymore – it’s almost too hard to eat, my taste buds have adjusted to the spiralized consistency!

The chickpeas are spiced with simple seasonings that pop when roasted, adding instant flavor to this dish that’s complimented by the refreshing Greek yogurt, which is tangy and seasoned with fresh dill.

If you’re planning a picnic or having friends over for lunch on the weekends outside, this is the perfect meal to make them – and it doesn’t require much time in the kitchen (aside from roasting the chickpeas – but you can always buy pre-roasted chickpeas.)

Spiced Chickpea Yogurt Bowls with Spiralized Cucumbers

Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time30 mins
Total Time45 mins

Ingredients

  • 1 15oz can chickpeas, drained, rinsed and patted dry
  • 3 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/2 small red onion Blade A, noodles trimmed
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon honey
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 English seedless cucumber Blade A, noodles trimmed
  • 1/2 cup quartered cherry tomatoes
  • ½ tablespoon fresh parsley chopped
  • ½ tablespoon fresh mint chopped
  • For the yogurt sauce:
  • 2/3 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons freshly chopped dill
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • salt and pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, mix together the chickpeas, olive oil, paprika, cumin and cayenne. Pour the chickpeas out on the prepared baking sheet, season with salt and pepper, and bake for 30 minutes or until crispy, shaking the pan halfway through.
  • While chickpeas cook, prepare the onions. In a medium bowl, whisk together the red wine vinegar, honey, and salt. Add the onions and toss to coat. Cover (with a plate or plastic wrap) and let marinate for at least 15 minutes.
  • Prepare the yogurt sauce: in a medium bowl, mix together the yogurt, dill, garlic, lemon, and salt and pepper. Taste and adjust, if needed.
  • Divide the cucumber noodles among 2 bowls, then add the cooked chickpeas, tomatoes, and quick-pickled onions. Drizzle the yogurt sauce on top with a spoon and garnish with the parsley and mint. Serve.

I make a similar meal to this, though the cucumbers aren't spiralized, just diced. Time to switch it up, I suppose. ;-D Good meal for the warm weather!
Pam says:
Ali: If I made the roasted chickpeas in advance, how long do they keep? and suggestions on storage so they keep crisp?? Thanks!!
Ali Maffucci says:
I'd suggest broiling them or toasting them in a skillet to reheat them and get some of their crispness back! They store for up to 4 days, I'd say!
Cheryl says:
I will be making this a lot this summer. Question though. The recipe says this makes 2 servings but the directions say to divide the cucumber into 4 bowls. Is this 2 servings or 4?
Ali Maffucci says:
That's a typo - just two bowls!
Susan says:
This tastes really good - and is helping with the transition to warm weather eating. Thank you. I had roasted red peppers on hand instead of tomatoes - great red color and nice taste.
Renette says:
Which is blade A? My spiralizer has a 3mm, 6mm and a blade with no label. Please advise
Ali Maffucci says:
The blade with no label! Sounds like you need a spiralizer upgrade :)
Renette says:
Thank you!!

remember a couple weeks ago when I sat in front of this same mirror, tucked my long hair into a sweater and debated whether to chop it all off or not? 💇🏻‍♀️ I think we all know what that decision was 🤪⁣

this is still by far the coziest sweater I own and they sell it in a yellow that's perfect for spring and I'm debating whether or not to get it 😬 I've been in a funk all week and can't seem to shake it. retail therapy moment?!⁣

jokes aside, I need a vacation. more specifically, I need 🍹 on a 🏝... anyone else?  ⁣

actually, I put the @oculus goggles on the other night to go to a virtual beach, and I almost started crying... the sounds of the seagulls, the little turtle crawling on the sand, the bright sun, the sounds of the waves crashing, the white stand, the wind and the palm trees.... I had no idea how therapeutic the ocean and the beach are for me!⁣

I've thought a lot about where our first "trip" will be once it's safe to travel again, and I've decided on a beach resort. will you do something adventurous or something lazy and beachy? http://liketk.it/39bMq #liketkit @liketoknow.it

went for a nice long walk outside with the kids (we haven’t been able to do that for a while, because it’s just been so freezing and/or snowing) 🥶 and then we decided to pick up some to-go sandwiches and while we waited, the kids had some banana bread and juice 🍊🍌🍞 luca said, “mama I want to stay here alllll day!” which made me feel sad, because we haven’t felt comfortable dining indoors yet, and I’m sure he misses the people watching at restaurants on the weekends 😔 it’s okay, I’m just filing this under “things we get to look forward to when it’s safe again” 💋 #jerseycity ...
