Vegan chickpea quinoa salad
With 45 grams of slow-burning carbs and 12 grams of fiber per cup, chickpeas easily make our list of the top 30 muscle-building foods of all time. Lucky for you—and your muscles—this salad is loaded up with them.
Combine stacks of romaine lettuce, a hearty serving of quinoa, and cooked chickpeas with a variety of sweet and savory plant-based toppings for the ultimate protein-packed salad.

2 cups chopped romaine lettuce
½ cup cooked quinoa
1 cup cooked chickpeas
For the dressing:
1 Tbsp tahini
½ lemon, juiced
1 Tbsp water
1 pinch sea salt
For the coconut "bacon" topping:
2 Tbsp coconut flakes
¼ tsp tamari sauce
¼ tsp liquid smoke
¼ tsp maple syrup
1 pinch sea salt
How to make it
Mix the lettuce, quinoa, and chickpeas in a bowl.
Mix all dressing ingredients and add a little more water if necessary.
For the topping, mix all ingredients for the coconut bacon in a bowl, and bake at 350°F for 15 minutes on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. You can make a larger batch of this and keep it in your pantry at room temperature to add to salads, soups, and veggie bowls.
