This is a great, hearty salad with protein from chickpeas, plus green leaves, peppery radishes, and lots of umami flavor from the dressing.
Make the dressing: Whisk all vinaigrette ingredients together in medium bowl or jar until combined. Set aside.
Make the salad: Brush cut sides of romaine/cos lettuce halves with oil and sprinkle with salt. Heat cast-iron frying pan over medium-high heat. Once pan is hot, place lettuce halves oiled-side down in pan. Use spatula to press lettuce wedges into hot pan; they should sizzle. Continue to cook for 3 to 4 minutes, until lettuce is charred and lightly wilted but still vibrantly green in parts. Remove from pan and set aside.
Add a little more avocado or olive oil to pan, keeping heat at medium-high. Add chickpeas with cayenne pepper and pinch of salt. Cook for about 3 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until chickpeas are heated through and golden in spots.
Serve romaine/cos lettuce, grilled-side up, scattered with chickpeas and sliced radishes. Drizzle dressing on top.

This cozy winter drink is perfect for sipping by the fireside. Serve it up with our Maple Pecans. It’s soothingly delicious and creamy served hot or cold. Plant milks We’ve suggested oat milk for an ultimate creamy beverage in our recipe. But any plant milk will be equally delicious. Other possibilities include unsweetened soy, almond, rice, and regular dairy milk products. Iced maple milk affogato A true Italian affogato is vanilla gelato or ice cream doused in espresso. In our version we place 2 scoops of vanilla ice cream in a glass and douse it with our hot Dreamy Maple Sipper. Shave some dark chocolate on top and gratings of nutmeg. Serve with a tall spoon. Delicious!
Here’s the perfect recipe for a fireside snack attack. It’s so easy and can be made ahead and stored in a tightly covered container in the fridge or freezer without losing crispness. Delicious served with a hot toddy. Crunchy munchies Switch out pecans for Brazil nuts or walnuts, or even mixed nuts. The trick is to use raw nuts, as opposed to roasted, as these would become too toasted. Try playing with different spices such as cinnamon or curry powder. These are delicious served on crostini that’s been spread with our Creamy Feta Dip.
