  • Open the can of chickpeas (garbanzo beans). Separate liquid by pouring it into a strainer. Run under cold water to wash off any remaining liquid from the can. Set aside. I have seen vegan recipes that use the garbanzo liquid from the can that is whipped into "vegan eggs".

  • After 15 minutes of roasting in vegetables, remove from oven and use a spoon to gently stir the vegetables. Allow to continuing to cook for another 5-10 minutes.
    Because the vegetables, were fairly cooked, the vegetable and peas were allowed to continue cooking for another 5 minutes.
    The sweet aroma from the oven permeated the entire apartment.

Fried Plantains (optional).

  • This is strictly optional. I fried some ripe plantain to add to the Vegan Roasted Vegetable Salad. The sweetness from the plantains adds another leverl of sweetness to the dish. The riper the plantain, the sweeter they are when fried. If you like, add some ripe fried plantains.

  • Heat about ½ cup oil in a cast iron pan. Slice ripe plantain diagonally or cross-sectional. Fry on each side until golden brown.
  • Remove from hot oil and allow to drain on the paper towel to remove excess oil.
