Chipotle Chickpea Salad… You GUYS…

Here’s the thing.

Plant-based protein is THE best way to go if you’re looking for energy, fullness, & a way of eating that supports your healthiest weight and muscle toning. 

If you think about it, it’s low in fat (and when it contains fat, it’s healthy fat), it’s a whole food, and it comes from plants (meaning that MORE of it is burned as energy in your body).

So if you’re eating healthy for long-term results, why not spend a little time learning how to make it taste amazing?

I’m a big fan of chipotle-flavored things. So things with a kick, but not TOO spicy. 

I love this easy salad because roasted chickpeas are crunchy, PACKED with flavor if you follow this recipe, and combined with a balanced plate…. you’re full for hours on end.

Here’s what you need:

Here’s what to do:

  • preheat your oven to 350 degrees F
  • after you drain & rinse the chickpeas, dry them well. Mix them in a bowl with the cumin, paprika, garlic powder, 1 1/2 tbsp chipotle hot sauce, salt, and pepper
  • oil your baking sheet and evenly spread the chickpeas on it. Roast for 30 minutes or until you see them become crispy.
  • when the chickpeas are done, remove them and mix in a bowl with the remaining hot sauce. Let this sit for a few minutes.
  • add the chickpeas into a large bowl with spring mix, cooked quinoa, avocado, and dressing of your choice.

Enjoy and especially enjoy how FULL you’ll be after eating this lean protein salad.
