"This Love One Today® fresh avocado recipe is another way to make the American Heart Association’s® recommendations part of your healthy lifestyle."
Heat oven to 400°F.
In a bowl, toss carrots, oil, 1/4 teaspoon of the salt, and pepper.
Transfer to a rimmed baking sheet, and bake 20 minutes. Add chick peas and walnuts to pan, stir and return to oven.
Bake until carrots are brown and tender, an additional 5 to 10 minutes.
In a large bowl combine kale, lemon juice, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and half of the avocado.
Massage kale with both hands until the avocado is pureed and the kale softens and turns bright green, about 2 minutes.
Add half of the carrot mixture to the kale; toss.
Place in a large serving bowl. Top with remaining carrot mixture and avocado.
