As if the “foodie stars” aligned, three of my favorite blogs posted recipes highlighting chickpeas. What a perfect coincidence. I had always wanted to create something delicious out of chickpeas but nothing comes to mind. With the help of these talented ladies, here’s what I made:
Instead of using sweet potatoes, I stuck with the basics: chickpeas, tahini, olive oil, salt, pepper, paprika.
This was so good. One lesson learned from making this salad: it matters what kind of tofu you use. Don’t skimp on good tofu, they are worth it! Now I realize, no wonder some people are repulsed by tofu, they haven’t tried the good stuff.
The recipe calls for tahini as the batter but I used the hummus I made and it still resulted to something spectacular. Definitely worth giving a try.
Btw, chickpeas or garbanzo beans have TONS of protein. So next time you get asked “So where do you get your protein?” You could add chickpeas to your list of answers.
