I’ve been running a “plant based challenge” group on Facebook and it’s been wonderful! We’ve gone over nutrition, recipes, how to eat a plant based diet on the go, and so much more.
One of my favorite and super easy recipes that’s full of protein, fiber, & other good stuff for your bod: chickpea salad.
I cook chickpeas ahead of time because it’s just cheaper and I know it’s not covered in salt. You can totally make it from can though, just rinse it.
Place 2 cups (or one can) of chickpeas in a food processor or mash it with a fork. Add in a little vegan mayo, (I use Just Mayo because it’s awesome!), a little brown mustard (can you tell I don’t measure?), garlic powder, & a dash of black pepper. That’s it! Super simple and filling. You could put it on a slice of Ezekiel toast, in a wrap, or on a giant piece of lettuce or collard greens.
When you make it, let me know in the comments what you think. If you would like to join the plant based challenge, shoot me an email, firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll get you in!
