For the Dressing:
Prepare the Chickpeas: In a bowl, combine the chickpeas with olive oil, smoked paprika, cumin, chili powder, salt, and pepper. Toss until the chickpeas are evenly coated. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and add the seasoned chickpeas. Cook for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally until they become crispy. Remove from heat and set aside.
Cook the Quinoa: In a medium saucepan, bring the vegetable broth (or water) to a boil. Stir in the quinoa and turmeric. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 15-20 minutes, or until the quinoa is fluffy and all the liquid is absorbed. Fluff with a fork and set aside.
Prepare the Dressing: In a small bowl, whisk together the tahini, lemon juice, minced garlic, water, salt, and pepper until you achieve a creamy consistency. Adjust the water as needed.
Assemble the Bowl: Divide the cooked quinoa among two serving bowls. Top with the seasoned chickpeas, baby spinach, cherry tomatoes, cucumber slices, and red onion. Drizzle the tahini dressing over the bowl, and garnish with fresh cilantro.
