Recipe: Veggieversary Chickpea Tacos (GF)

This weekend, my best friend is celebrating her VEGGIEVERSARY!!!!!

Since we share clothes, she came over for a lunch date/to find some saweet outfits for the weekend. I got right to work strapping on my pretty apron and making something phenomenal for lunch.


If you try nothing else on this blog...please. Try these. (Vegetarianism not required.)

Chickpea Tacos w/Homemade Guac:
  • 8, 6-in. corn tortillas
  • lettuce
  • tomato
  • 1, 15-oz can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • taco seasoning (I used this recipe for GF-I always use McCormick's spices)
  • tamari sauce
  • lemon juice
  • favorite salsa (I used tomatillo salsa)
  • homemade guac (recipe follows)
  • fresh cilantro
Spray cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Prepare homemade taco seasoning (GF), or use a package (not GF). Combine chickpeas, seasoning, tamari, and lemon juice. Spread evenly over cookie sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes- until chickpeas are crunchy on the outside, but have a slight "give" on the inside.

Guac that Rocks (Ha...):
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1 T fresh cilantro, minced
  • 1 lg clove garlic, minced
  • salt/pepper
  • lime juice (~1 T)
Prepare guac by smashing all ingredients together. Warm corn tortillas by microwaving for about 20 seconds between 2 moist paper towells. Assemble tacos using chickpeas, lettuce, tomato, salsa, guac, and a sprinkle o'cilantro.

*Makes 2, 4-taco servings (Yes...4 tacos. The girls can eat!)


Do you have a recipe that you think is absolutely, blow your socks off phenomenal? Share with me please!!!

Peace, Love, and Veggies,
Bee Louise
