Quick and Easy Salsa Chickpea Tacos

Quick and Easy Salsa Chickpea Tacos

It's that time of year when schedules are busy, so most any recipe with the words quick and easy in the title is going to sound like a winner. But some recipes are so easy (and yet still amazingly delicious) that I wish a creative food writer would come up with a more emphatic description; something that captures the idea that this can be on the table in 10 minutes, no actual cooking is required, it will taste amazing, and you will want to make it over and over! When we get that new recipe descriptor, I'm recommending Quick and Easy Salsa Chickpea Tacos from The Taste Space be labeled that way. If you're not a chickpea fan, make this with another type of beans, but personally I would gobble this up for an outrageously easy Meatless Monday dinner!

Easy, Portable Lunch: Smoky Chickpea Tacos

After one quick read through the recipe, I was convinced that these Smoky Chickpea Tacos from FamilyStyle Food have everything going for them as a Meatless Monday lunch or dinner. Karen spices up chickpeas with onion, jalapeƱo, and smoky paprika and then combines them on tortillas with arugula, goat cheese, avocado, and tomato. So many of my favorite flavors combined in a taco! Don't you agree that this sounds wonderful? And just skip the goat cheese and this recipe is also vegan.   Read more >

Before we talk about this Pressure Cooker Chickpea Gremolata from my friend Lydia at The Perfect Pantry, let's talk about the electric pressure cooker she made it in.

Soupapalooza: Curried Chickpea and Tomato Soup with Peanut Butter

If you think about meatless meals, peanut butter sandwiches must be be one of the most widely consumed meatless dishes, don't you agree? But lately peanut butter is gaining attention as a soup ingredient, adding creamy and nutty flavor to turn any soup into something special. I think this Curried Chickpea and Tomato Soup with Peanut Butter from Dinner with Julie sounds like a wonderful dish for Meatless Monday. Julie uses chicken stock and cream, but I'm sure a vegan version with vegetable stock and coconut milk would also be great.   Read more >
