Ingredients for Chickpea Shawarma with Millet Recipe : 3 cloves garlic (minced), 1 tablespoon ground cumin, 1 tablespoon ground coriander, 1 teaspoon sea salt, 1 teaspoon turmeric powder, 1 teaspoon allspice, 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger, 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper, Pinch of cayenne pepper, 3 tablespoons olive oil, 2 cups chickpeas (or 1-15 ounce can, drained and rinsed), 1/3 cup thinly sliced red onion, 1 cup uncooked millet, 2 cups water, Pinch of salt.

Steps to Make Chickpea Shawarma with Millet :
- Preheat oven to 350˚.
- In a medium bowl, combine minced garlic with spices (cumin through the cayenne pepper). Add in the olive oil and stir until well combined/paste has formed. Stir in the chickpeas and red onions, using a spatula to toss and coat. Transfer chickpeas to a roasting pan and cover with foil. Bake for 30 minutes until chickpeas are hot and onions are tender.
- While chickpeas are cooking, combine millet with 2 cups water and a pinch of salt (see note). Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and let cook until the majority of water as been absorbed (12 to 14 minutes). Cover, remove from heat, and let sit until chickpeas are done (the millet needs a bit of time to absorb any leftover water).
- Prepare the toppings you want to use and once chickpeas are done, divide millet, cover with chickpeas, and add your favorite toppings.
