Preheat oven to 350 F (180 C) and line baking sheet with parchment. Set aside.
In large shallow bowl, whisk oil, maple syrup, soy or coconut aminos, and seasonings together.
Using mandoline or vegetable peeler, shave carrots into long, thin ribbons. Gently run ribbons through sauce, making sure they are evenly coated, and place in single layers on baking sheet. Brush strips with remaining sauce and set aside for 5 minutes for flavours to fully absorb into ribbons. Bake in centre of preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes, turning strips halfway through cooking for even browning. Remove sheet from oven and set aside. Ribbons will still be slightly soft but will harden as they cool. Sprinkle with additional salt, if you wish.
Store in airtight container in refrigerator for a few days. To crisp up, place in oven on low for several minutes.

Breaking with tradition, think of this as a guise of tabbouleh salad with staying power, thanks to the addition of hearty sorghum and fibre-rich navy beans. It also ages fairly well, so it serves as a make-ahead meal that can keep for up to 3 days. A perfect plant-based option for weekday lunches.
This versatile salad featuring chickpeas in a bright, fragrant dressing, holds well in the fridge. Make it in advance or keep it for leftovers. Nigella seeds, also known as kalonji, lend a sweet, nutty flavour with an ever-so-slightly bitter edge that pairs perfectly with sweet potato’s sweetness. Chickpeas please! Chickpeas are a great source of dietary fibre; just 1 cup (250 mL) contains 42 percent of the recommended daily allowance. They’re also a very good source of manganese, which is important for calcium absorption and blood sugar regulation.
