Like chili on a baked potato---except so much more alluring, with caramelized roasted sweet potato and spiced chickpeas. Tie it all together with lemon-tahini dressing, fresh mint and dreams of far-off places.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 425°. In a small bowl, stir together 1 tablespoon olive oil, the tahini, lemon juice and 2 tablespoons water. Stir in additional water, 1 teaspoon at a time, until sauce is desired consistency. Stir in raisins.

  • In a medium bowl, combine 1 tablespoon olive oil, the harissa, garlic, 1/2 teaspoon salt, the cinnamon and cloves. Add chickpeas, bell pepper and onion; stir to coat. Spread in a 15×10-inch baking pan.

  • Place a second 15×10-inch baking pan in the oven to preheat 5 minutes. Brush cut sides of sweet potatoes with remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil and sprinkle with remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt. Place potatoes, cut sides down, on hot baking pan. Roast until tender, 30 to 35 minutes.

  • After potatoes have baked for 15 minutes, add the pan with chickpeas to oven; roast until crisp, stirring once, 15 to 20 minutes. To serve, spoon chickpea mixture over potatoes. Drizzle with tahini sauce and sprinkle with mint.
