Spicy Chickpeas Lettuce Wraps with Cilantro Jalapeno Sauce #vegan #lunch

Spicy Chickpeas lettuce wraps with cilantro Jalapeno sauce #vegan #lunch

I began to look all starry eyed at chickpeas at my neighborhood Indian eateries with their chickpea curry. Chickpeas are super filling and tasty and make a delightful meat substitution. Of late, I've been making these zesty fresh chickpeas and adding them to my servings of mixed greens, pizza and pretty much whatever else!

They are cooked on the stove-top and are prepared in only 5 minutes! Today we're transforming this concealed pearl into a filling flavor-pressed lunch.

To start you will require canned chickpeas. I don't recommend utilizing dry chickpeas since they take long to cook yet in the event that you should, I propose cooking them in the weight cooker. The following stage is to just deplete the chickpeas and consolidate them with the zest mix and skillet "fry" for 3-5 minutes or until the chickpeas are carmelized and fresh.
