Vegan Chickpea Pasta Salad with Tahini Dressing

Vegan chickpea pasta salad with tahini dressing. Chickpeas, pasta, arugula, red onion, tomatoes and tahini dressing. Key word here: Tahini. Have you ever tried tahini dressing with pasta? It’s life-changing (slight exaggeration here, but my love for tahini dressing is real). Rarely do I make a salad without it, no matter the kind of salad. Part of it is because it tastes so good, the other part of it is because I’m too lazy most days to make creamy dressings using avocadoes or cashews and a blender. I mean, more dishes? No thank you. To make things even better, this salad is all done in one bowl (plus a small mason jar to make the sauce, but at least that can easily go in the dishwasher). Here’s how it goes: Boil the pasta…

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. My other…

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 all…

My Go-To Avocado Toasts + Exciting News!

In 3 weeks, I’ll be working as a registered dietitian (candidate)! I got selected to work in cardiology, oncology and surgery in the largest hospital/cardiac center of the province. I’ll be working 4 days a week and I won’t have internship or university projects anymore, which means I’ll be able to spend more time testing out new recipes. I’m so excited for this next step! I’m finishing my internship 2 weeks early and I’ll finally be able to start my career as a registered dietitian (candidate). 5 years of hard work pays off! I still have 2 weeks to go and 2 big projects to finish, which means I have no time to waste. Some meals have helped get me through my last 5 years…

Everyday Salad with Tahini Dressing & Chickpea Croutons

Meet my go-to salad. I’ve been eating this salad almost weekly for over a year now and I never get tired of it. What does that tell you? I just love crispy chickpeas and tahini with greens. I can’t get enough of it! What I love most about this salad is that you can change it up with whichever vegetables you have on hand. Here are some of my favorites: Kale Arugula Spring mix Romaine lettuce Spinach For added crunch, I like to use: Cabbage Shredded carrots Chickpea croutons Sunflower seeds or pepita seeds You probably have some of these ingredients on hand already? I know I always have one leafy green in my fridge, a few cans of chickpeas in the pantry and mason jars full of nuts and seeds. And I almost always…
