A oatmeal, blueberry yogurt, and green apple parfait!
GARBANZO BEANS. CHICKPEAS. WHATEVERTHEFUCK YOU WANT TO CALL THEM. These tiny bastards are filled to the brim with protein, fiber, iron, folate, B-6, magnesium, and all kinds of other boss nutritious shit that your body needs on the daily. If you’re short on time or feeling lazy you can buy them already cooked in a can. They’re less than a fucking dollar. Try them as a sandwich filling, blended up to make hummus, or roasted and wrapped into a burrito. I mean shit, you can use this recipe as a dip or toss it on top of salad. Chickpeas are versatile as fuck.
CHICKPEA PESTO SANDWICH
1 ¼ cup torn, packed basil leaves
1/3 cup slivered or sliced almonds
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon lemon juice
½ teaspoon lemon zest
½ teaspoon salt
2-3 cloves of garlic, chopped
1 ½ cups cooked chickpeas (or one 15 ounce can)
Put all the ingredients for the pesto in a food processor and blend until smooth-ish. No food processor? Chill the fuck out. Just put the almonds in a plastic bag and smash them until they are tiny and chop the rest of that shit up super small too. Mix all of it together with a fork until it looks like a paste.
Mash up the chickpeas in a medium bowl so that they kind of look like a paste but some chunks of bean are all good. Grate the carrot into the bowl and mix that shit together with the chickpea paste. Add about a ⅓ cup of the pesto and stir until everything is coated then taste. Maybe you like more pesto than me, I don’t fucking know. Add some more until your ass is happy with it. Grab some of your favorite sammie ingredients and add SANDWICH ARTIST to your fucking resume.
