Mashed Chickpea Salad

ít's one of those recípes that never gets old! The easíest, healthíest and yummíest lunch around. Everythíng í love ís all wrapped up ín one bowl of super delísh mísh-mosh! Crunchy, savory and sweet all the elements ín every bíte.

Plus, the leftovers are always more scrumptíous the next day, once all the flavors mesh together. Thís tíme, í took ít up a notch and added a líttle kale.. because why not?! The kale goes unnotíced and thís way, we can get ín some extra greens  ?? í also chopped up an apple to add crunch and a subtle sweetness that helps to balance out the flavors.


Wíth plenty of plant proteín from the chíckpeas and veggíes, lots of fíber and víbrant color, thís wíll soon become your new favoríte lunch! You can wrap ít up ín a tortílla or collard wrap, you can spread ít over toast (my fave) you can make a sandwích out of ít, or you can eat ít plaín. Thís Mashed Chíckpea Salad never gets old; your tummy wíll be full and happy.  Honestly though, í always turn to thís salad when í'm síck of my super green leafy salads that's hard to admít because í love my greens, but í go through phases wíth salads. Sometímes í crave them for a week straíght and can't get enough. Other tímes, í just feel líke blah towards them and would rather eat a chocolate bar for lunch.

Ever sínce goíng vegan about a year ago, í've been makíng thís Mashed Chíckpea Salad.
