It’s not a secret that chickpeas are my favorite legume. This is going to sound weird, but they don’t taste ‘bean-y’ even when they come from a can. A LOT of other beans have an odd taste to them when they are canned. I know dried beans always taste better than canned, but I’m a girl on the go, living a fast paced life and I would rather keep cans of beans on hand than eat something unhealthy. I’m picky about chickpeas still, I like them roasted, made into hummus, in cutlet form or made into burgers. Roasted chickpeas are my favorite though. They’re just so…snackable. This is my favorite way to marinate them before baking. I mix together a small amount of oil with lots of homemade parma, low sodium tamari, lemon juice, and Frank’s hot sauce. Sometimes I add garlic powder too.
Tequila shots are fun. That’s Sloane’s smoking hand. oops
Vegetable Root Chips with a garlicky honey mustard style sauce. These were so good that they didn’t need the sauce. We ate about half of them before I got a picture. Kayla and I had these at bar 308; which is an seriously cool spot in East Nashville. The interior is really awesome and they have happy hour EVERY WEEK DAY from 5-8. So you should go in there and have some a drink, or three.
After my adventures with Kayla last night, Wes and I went to The Wild Cow around 8:30 last night…which is far too late for me to be having dinner…but I was at a work thing all day yesterday that didn’t include lunch, so I hadn’t eaten besides some of the above veggie chips. I had a buffalo tofu grinder with spicy kale on the side. mmmm.
