Moroccan Roasted Vegetable Salad with Chickpeas (A Seat at the Table)

A lot of people in my life are vegetarians, so I’m pretty aware of vegetarian options when I go out to eat.  Even though I’m not always ordering a vegetarian option, I have a lot of sympathy for vegetarians when restaurant options are sparse and/or uninspired.  Vegetables are delicious and just because an entree doesn’tRead more
