A few months ago, I heard about these Greek Chickpeas at Trader Joe’s and really wanted to try them out. Unfortunately, they come in a can that is literally packed with oil. We did end up buying one can to try out, and I loved the simplicity of the flavors, but there was just SO much oil. Of course Brian went home and started experimenting with his own oil-free version, and that ended up evolving into today’s recipe!
This recipe is super quick to throw together and can be eaten as a side dish or added to other ingredients to make a lovely salad or Brian’s “Greek Bowl,” as he called it in our What We Eat In A Week video (https://youtu.be/c-0IhzNTM4A) back in January.
I really love the flavor of these Greek-style chickpeas on their own, but if you want to bulk it up a bit and make it into a meal, check out the add-in suggestions in the recipe linked above.
Brian’s favorite way to make up his “Greek Bowl” is to heat up a frozen bag of riced cauliflower and then top with a generous portion of the chickpeas, along with some diced red onion, sliced black olives and Good Foods plant-based Tzatziki sauce.
I really enjoy these on a salad, along with some of @Brand New Vegan’s tofu feta (http://bit.ly/BNVTofuFeta). You don’t really need a dressing since the chickpeas are coated with a ton of flavor, but I did try adding a small amount of the Caesar dressing from The Healthspan Solution and it was SUPER good!
