Chickpea "Egg" Salad
- 1 can chickpeas
- 10 grape tomatoes cut into fourths
- 1 cup spinach, chopped small
- 1 small onion, diced
- 2 tablespoons chives
- 3 tablespoons plain yogurt (any brand is fine; just be sure it is plain)
- 1 tsp Dijon mustard
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
After you have rinsed and drained the chickpeas, dry them off and mash them with a fork. Add veggies and mix together. Next add yogurt and spices and mix again. Serves 3-4 so you may want to do 1 ½ of the recipe to have enough for the week. When you are ready to eat, place lettuce on your wrap and then add the “egg” salad over the lettuce. Roll the wrap up and enjoy!
