Soaking your mushrooms in balsamic vinegar releases a bit more earthiness, while the sweetness of balsamic balances it out in a fun twist with this mushroom salad recipe. This is a great dish for summer parties or as a snack between meals, with the extra nutrition of the garbanzo beans (fiber, protein, antioxidants, anti-inflammatory, manganese, and iron) helping keep you feel full and satisfied.
We LOVE the mighty chickpea around these parts. The chickpea has evolved beyond building an awesome hummus and now is found for a base for our cookie dough dip and a great snack here with these roasted chickpeas. Why are these little things so awesome? They are packed with fiber, protein, iron, help boost immunity and even promote better sleep. And they taste soooooo good!
A nice cool rain or frosty winter afternoon are perfect for this heart warming cozy soup. It's simple, yet tasty, and comes together quickly (then simmers on the stove for an hour to really meld the flavors together), what's not to love?
Naan is a classic indian flatbread used in lieu of a utensil. It's chewy, dense, and delicious and often the best part of eating at your favorite Indian restaurant. This recipe comes together quick and uses canned coconut milk and tapioca flour to bring that texture into your home~
Ooooh, the yummy falafel. We love chickpeas around here, but prefer our food NOT deep fried whenever possible. Using garbanzo bean powder and sauteing in a pan instead, you get all the goodness of the flavor of these falafel cuties, but not the totally stuffed feeling you get from the fried up version.
All the layers of flavor from your favorite Thai restaurant but from the comfort of your own home! This recipe is super versatile and you can choose your own protein. This will also work great with leftover chicken or protein from last night's dinner! Not only that, there's so many awesome options for toppers so each person can really customize their bowl. Look for full fat canned coconut milk for this to yield a real creamy and comforting soup.
What a food swap this one is! Trust us - you will NOT miss the potatoes here, and you'll gain the major benefits of cauli in this wonderful salad!
The good thing about chickpeas, is you can almost put them anywhere as a protein swap! And the result is usually FABULOUS! This recipe right here is no exception. All the flavor of a tuna salad, none of the mercury or tuna smell in the office 🙂 You can make a sandwich out of this with sprouted grain bread or a lettuce wrap, or eat it straight up with a spoon, it's just that good.
