100 Things to do with Chickpeas

Vegan Chickpea Tuna Melt

Today's post goes through a myriad of topics from Jim Gaffigan, hate mail, and fast-swimming sea creatures. I don't know why a post about Chickpea Tuna Melts require such meandering topics, but that's what we're dealing with today. For now, let me just say that today's recipe is a perfect addition to my fresh and easy summer sandwiches...a staple when temperatures (and tempers) are on the rise.

Cheesy Creamed Cauliflower Soup

Winter may be singing her swan song, but I'm not quite ready to give up on one of my favorite parts of that season - soup. So here's my homage to winter - a vegan cheesy cauliflower soup. It's so creamy I even serve it over a baked potato with a little steamed broccoli on top. It's equally delicious in a bowl, slowly savoring one spoonful after another.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Pie

It's Wednesday. Do you know where your chickpeas are? That's right, I've adding another recipe to my 100 Things to Do with Chickpeas series and this one is a humdinger. Well, really it's a pie, but it is a humdinger of a pie so I think that works.

Vegan Baked Chick Parmesan

Having Baked Chicken Parmesan as a vegan seems like an impossible thing, but I'm here to tell you, it's not! You simply bring to life the "chick" side of chicken and turn a can of chickpeas into something über fantastic!

Chocolate Chip Chickpea Cheesecake

Few things light my candle as much as a good dessert like this Chocolate Chip Chickpea Cheesecake. It's so delicious you would never suspect that it's vegan. Do you hear that chorus of moo-ing? That's cows across the nation rejoicing. You want to know what's even better yet? I bet you that you won't be able to tell that this dessert adds yet another item to my list of 100 Things To Do with Chickpeas. Cheesecake with chickpeas? Oh lah, my mother would say...and not in a good kind of way!

Apple Pie Cinnamon Rolls

What's better than a neighbor with an apple tree? A neighbor with an apple tree who shares! That's the inspiration behind these Apple Pie Cinnamon Rolls which turn out not only to be delicious, but tipping the scale on the healthy side as well.

Chocolate Zucchini Cake

This is a recipe my family asks for repeatedly because my Chocolate Zucchini Cake has such a moist texture and fabulous flavors. It's a classic fall recipe because zucchini's are in-season and we're lucky enough to have one of those lovely neighbors with a generous garden!
