Try this delicious and easy way to incorporate plant based protein into your diet!
Recently I made a poll on Instagram stories to see what your opinions were on tofu. I was shocked to learn that it was split 60/40, with around 40% of you guys not liking tofu.
I completely understand those findings though. I didn’t start eating tofu until 2015 when I first went Vegan. Tofu can seem completely unapproachable and the texture can turn people off. It reality, it just takes learning the ways that you like to cook/eat it. For example, I really loved baked tofu. It really firms up the texture and makes it a lot meatier.
However, I really took those poll findings and decided to put them to good use. Chickpeas are a great source of plant based protein and taste so delicious! They’re also super versatile and work really well as a base in many asian inspired dishes.
So that being said, I decided to use them in this orange chickpeas recipe. This is incredibly easy to make, but packs a whole lot of flavor.
I love to serve this chickpeas with some rice and broccoli, but in reality they can go with a lot of items!
