Smashed Chickpea, Avocado + Quinoa Lettuce Wraps

Did you know that there is a food called a pulse?

Well it's not one food, but rather a group of foods, that most of us eat on a pretty regular basis. This group of foods is also a staple in almost every single type of cuisine across the globe. But the name itself is totally unknown.

What are they? BEANS! …specifically dried beans, lentils, chickpeas and split peas. They sound a lot like legumes, and are actually part of the legume family, but pulses don't include things like peanuts, soy beans, fresh beans and fresh peas.

  • 1 15 oz can chickpeas, drained + rinsed
  • 1 medium avocado
  • 1/4 cup cooked quinoa
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • Juice of half a lime
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • Cracked pepper to taste
  • 1 head boston bib lettuce or romaine
  • Optional toppings: sliced cherry tomatoes chopped cilantro, vegan sour cream/tahini

  1. Add the chickpeas and avocado to a large bowl. Mash with a potato masher or fork until chickpeas are broken up and the avocado is creamy.
  2. Stir in quinoa, cilantro and lime juice. Season with salt and pepper, taste and adjust seasonings as necessary.
  3. Add into lettuce leaves and top with desired toppings.*

*if you're bringing these for lunch at the office, store the salad and lettuce separately then assemble just before you're ready to eat.
