Ahh the chickpea. The versatile little bean that can be cooked, puree into a dip , put beautifully in a salad, baked and sprinkled to be sweet and nutritious and good for you to boot. I think I could eat them everyday and every way and sometimes straight out of the can I plan on experimenting more in future with this versatile little bean. I woke up this morning wondering what today’s menu would consist of.Hmmmmm
And Let me just say it was divine!
I work a pretty physically demanding job which I love but I am usually starving by lunch time. I couldn’t wait for my ….get this….Peazza Chick style Salad. If you are a pizza lover then I assure you will love this salad. So easy and so delish! There really is no recipe only start with chickpeas and add anything you would normally have on your pizza. Mine consisted of chickpeas, chopped spinach, black olives, a little red onion(which I adore),green pepper,tomato, a sprinkle of some vegan cheese and about 2 Tbsp of pizza sauce. Season to taste and you have a fantastic, filling salad.
I displayed it on my pizza stone for the effect Serve with some yummy sprouted grain bread or crackers and enjoy. You could even have this warmed a bit but I love it cold.
What I am learning more and more is how fun being a vegan really is. My favorite thing to do is taking the meat,butter,and cheese laden dishes I grew up on and taking them and veganizing them It can be challenging but that’s what I love.
If you are vegan has it been a challenge for you ? What are you greatest challenges? I know mine comes from eating out. That can pose some problems but it’s all a learning process.
I’m off for a run. I hope you have a great evening. I have no idea whats for dinner. Until then ……
