Roasted Chickpeas Lettuce Tacos

FullSizeRender-2

Tacos are awesome because you basically just dump in a bunch of delicious toppings, then pick it up and DEVOUR it! But depending on what fillings you choose, your taco may not be the healthiest… However, if the shell of your taco is a leaf of lettuce, you know you are headed in the right direction. Then all you have to do is fill it with toppings that make both your taste buds and your body happy, like these roasted chickpeas!

All three tacos have the same base ingredients, but different toppings.

INGREDIENTS

Base

Additional Toppings

  • kimchi
  • pitted and sliced medjool dates
  • balsamic vinegar
  • garlic aioli

DIRECTIONS

Taco combo #1: Fill a piece of Boston lettuce with chickpeas, avocado, a sliced medjool date, and drizzle with garlic aioli

Taco combo #2: Fill a piece of Boston lettuce with chickpeas and avocado, and drizzle with balsamic vinegar

Taco combo #3: Fill a piece of Boston lettuce with chickpeas, avocado and kimchi

Combo #1 is definitely my favourite! The medjool dates are not pictured because I didn’t think to add them at the time; but I’ve included them in every taco I’ve made since then, and will continue to because their sweet flavour tastes so good with the spicy chickpeas! I recommend making all of the combos though because it’s fun to mix it up.
