2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Cook the curried chickpeas

  • Peel and coarsely chop the onion.
  • Rinse the chickpeas.

In a medium sauce pot over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the onion, season with salt, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to caramelize, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in the chickpeas and curry powder and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. 

Stir in the tomatoes and ½ cup [1 cup] water, season with salt and pepper, and bring to a boil, then reduce to a vigorous simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the tomatoes have broken down and the liquid has thickened, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from the heat, cover, and keep warm. While the curried chickpeas are cooking, prepare the salad.


Make the arugula-date salad

  • Coarsely chop the dates, checking for any pits.

In a medium bowl, stir together the dates, pumpkin seeds, champagne vinegar, and 1 to 2 tablespoons oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Add the arugula and toss to coat. 


Warm the pita breads

On the stovetop directly over a flame, or in a dry medium frying pan over medium heat, warm the pita breads, turning once, until lightly toasted, about 30 seconds per side. Alternatively, toast them in a toaster oven.


Transfer the pita breads to individual plates and spread with the lemon-dill yogurt. Top with the curried chickpeas and arugula-date salad and serve.
