Quick Lunch Series: Chickpea Week


I have been meaning to try these chickpea based recipes for sometime now. Although I always have canned chickpeas ready to go, it is always fun to use dry chickpeas: soak, cook and use! And while you do that, don’t forget to snack on the soaked chickpeas! Delicious!

I soaked some chickpeas during the weekend and steamed them Sunday night, so they were ready to go for the weekday lunches. I did not get to try all the recipes I wanted to, but here’s three fun ones.

First up is Chickpea Salad. I made absolutely no change to the original recipe and you can find it here.

Next up is this Quinoa salad. The only change is I added left over avocado. You can find that recipe here.

The last recipe is an old one but a favorite. This time around I did use artichoke. It is good with artichoke or mango. Check it out here!
