There are days when I don’t have the patience to cook up a storm, especially when I’m tired from a workout or have been running around the whole day.
So, this is my go-to meal for dinner. It’s simple and easy to make. You can add whatever you fancy to make it a hearty meal. I sometimes bake sweet potatoes and eat it as a side if I’m really hungry.
Ingredients for Chickpea mix:
-1 can chickpeas or 1 1/2 cup of boiled chickpeas
(It is best to soak chickpeas overnight to reduce the boiling time. It normally takes 5 1/2 hours to boil chickpeas if not soaked)
-1 tsp paprika
-1 tsp garlic powder
-1/2 tsp himalayan salt
-1/2 tsp pepper
-1/4 tsp. cumin powder
-1/4 tsp cayenne powder
-1 tbsp. grapeseed oil
-1/2 tbsp. lemon juice
Preheat oven to 375degrees. In a bowl, mix all ingredients together making sure to coat chickpeas evenly with the spices. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes or when chickpeas are slightly crispy.
To assemble the wrap, you’ll need:
-store bought whole wheat pita wraps (or you can make your own)
– 1 cucumber
– 1 red bell pepper
-1 avocado, diced (season with salt and pepper)
-homemade Tahini garlic sauce
My recipe – 3 tbsp tahini
1 tbsp. bragg’s amino sauce
1 tbsp. lemon juice,
1 tsp. minced garlic
1 tsp. apple cider vinegar,
1 tbsp. water
Mix and adjust accordingly. If it’s too tart, you can add a teaspoon of raw honey.
