Chickpea-Nut Butter Ice Cream

Chickpea-Nut Butter Ice Cream: Ice cream that’s made with chickpeas, plant-based milk, dates and peanut butter. So basically, a frozen dessert that’s high in fiber, healthy fats, protein (depending on the milk you use) and sweetened with fruit. To be honest, I kept this recipe from you guys since Christmas. I know, so selfish! In my defense, ice cream didn’t feel like an appropriate recipe to share during winter. Especially not with the cold weather we had in December and January. So why did I even make this recipe in December in the first place? Well, because it was supposed to be freezer fudge. Turns out, it had a texture similar to ice cream… I’m not mad about that at all. The other reason I kept this recipe hidden for…

Roasted Potato Pesto Salad with Spicy Chipotle Chickpeas

Roasted potato pesto salad with spicy chipotle chickpeas. Another delicious vegan recipe for you guys! I’m almost halfway through my vegan month and to be honest, it doesn’t feel different from my usual diet. That doesn’t mean it’s not a bit challenging at times. The most challenging change for me was to omit the milk in my coffee. While I don’t usually drink cow’s milk anyways (personal preference and a slight intolerance), I do add a touch of whole milk in my coffee every morning. Almond milk, coconut milk and soy milk are not the same. Nope. I just can’t tolerate the taste in coffee. So far, I’ve been using cashew milk, which tastes the best in coffee in my opinion. Vegan creamers would…

Instant Pot Butter Chickpea

I have a delicious Instant Pot butter chickpea for you guys today. I’m excited to share my first Instant Pot recipe after spending a few months trying to figure out how it works. Yes, a few months. It’s not like I used it every day, but the few times I did, I had no idea how to use it. I promise I read the instructions manual, but something just didn’t click. My visual brain needed videos from YouTube to figure this thing out. So here I am, a few months later, confident enough to share my very own Instant Pot recipe. And it’s a good one! Don’t worry, if you don’t have an Instant Pot, you can still make this recipe. I included a stove top version just…

Quick & Easy Chickpea Salad Sandwich

(This post is sponsored by Silver Hills Bakery) Today is all about easy lunches for school or work. More specifically, I’m sharing with you one of my favorite sandwiches: This quick and easy chickpea salad sandwich. Along with my other favorite lunchbox friendly recipes from the blog.  I first started making this sandwich approximately 3 years ago. I used a few recipes as inspiration, but most of the time, I just mixed whichever ingredients I had on hand without measuring. I just wanted something quick and filling for my lunches at work or university. I have no time for complicated lunches in the morning and I’m sure I’m not alone! For that reason, this sandwich has been my go-to lunch over the last few years, especially when I’m short on time.&nbsp…

Roasted Potato & Chickpea Salad with Tahini Dressing

Meet my new favorite salad: Roasted Potato & Chickpea Salad with Tahini Dressing. I say that for pretty much every salad I eat. Then I eat that salad on repeat until I find a new favorite. First it was Angela’s vegan Caesar salad, then it was my everyday salad with tahini dressing and chickpea crouton, after that it was my sweet potato and toasted bread winter salad and now this one. I go from one salad to another, but I always make one of my old favorites once in a while. I honestly wouldn’t be able to pick a real favorite. It changes every day.  So this one is new to my list of favorite salads. I first made it a few weeks ago when I was low in ingredients (pretty much the strategy behind…
