A vegan recipe that sounds good and requires no knife work? You know I’m trying that recipe out !
The original recipe mentions how you could use this in a variety of ways and since it’s still hot like summer time here, I chose to use it in a salad. The chickpeas were saucy enough that I didn’t add any kind of dressing to the greens. I did let the chickpeas cool down a little before adding them to the salad so I wouldn’t end up with a bunch of wilted greens. I liked the spicy, smoky and just a little sweet flavor of the finished sauce. I used Hickory barbecue sauce and chose to add liquid hickory smoke to my version so if you choose a different kind of barbecue sauce it might not have as much smokiness to the finished product. My mom thought the chickpeas were a little too spicy to eat all on their own so we also ended up fixing some brown rice to serve this with.

I wasn’t paid in any form to mention this recipe.
Take care y’all !
