Cilantro Lime Chickpeas

These chickpeas are light, bright and refreshing.  The perfect protein boost to recharge after a sweaty workout, or to pack in you bag for lunch on the go.

You can serve this up any way that you want.  For lunch today, I paired them with brown rice and slices of avocado, but it would be just as lovely with some quinoa or wrapped up in a corn tortilla.  Anyway, it is fresh and delish, just don’t leave out the avocado slices, they are a must.

Cilantro Lime Chickpeas:

  • 1 can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup of fresh cilantro leaves
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1 fresh Serrano pepper, seeded
  • juice from 1 lime
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Avocado for serving

In a food processor or blender, blend the cilantro, garlic, lime juice, and olive oil.  Place the chickpeas and cilantro lime dressing in a Tupperware type container and shake it like a Polaroid picture!  Serve with the avocado and grain of your choice for a complete protein.
