Since it’s Memorial Day weekend and many of my US readers will probably be heading to picnics, I thought I’d share a recipe for marinated chickpeas, which make a great vegan chickpea salad wrap!
This is one of my favorite lunch wraps year round, because it’s easy, inexpensive, healthy, and it travels well because there’s no mayo.
2 T olive oil
3 T red wine vinegar
2 garlic cloves, pressed
1/2 of a red onion, chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 1/2 cups chickpeas (or one 15.5 oz. can, drained)
Whisk together the dijon, lemon juice, olive oil, and vinegar. Stir in the garlic, onion, and red bell pepper. Add the chickpeas, and stir to combine.
It’s ready to serve immediately, but I prefer to make it a day or so ahead of time so the flavors have time to mingle in the fridge.
I usually eat this for lunch, in a whole grain wrap.
