This vegan caesar salad recipe with crispy chickpeas will satisfy all your caesar salad needs while relying on plant-based ingredients!
Preheat oven to 450 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat.
Toss chickpeas in olive oil, salt, smoked paprika, oregano, and garlic powder. Spread evenly on baking sheet, and roast at 450 F for 25 minutes or until golden brown.
Meanwhile, add all dressing ingredients to a blender and blend on high until smooth. Add more water as needed, 1 tbsp at a time until you've reached desired consistency.
Once chickpeas are done, add all ingredients to a large bowl. Toss to combine, and serve with an extra sprinkle of nutritional yeast and drizzle of lemon juice (if desired). Serve and enjoy!
