  2. Toss with lemon zest and 1 head of romaine lettuce, kale, Napa cabbage or, really any other vegetable.
  3. Optional: toss with chickpea croutons (recipe below) and add a sprinkling of nutritional yeast on top (reminiscent of Parmesan).
For the Chickpea Croutons:
  1. Preheat oven to 325*F
  2. Toss the cooked chickpeas (either from the can, or preferably, soaked overnight and then simmered with a piece of Kombu until soft) together in a bowl with the rest of the ingredients.
  3. Spread out on a parchment-lined baking sheet and roast at 325*F for 30 minutes, or until they start to dry out and any liquid on the sheet has evaporated. Add to the salad either warm or cooled slightly.
