Buffalo Chickpea Burgers | Dairy Free, Gluten Free, Egg Free, Vegan

Buffalo chicken sandwiches were my all-time favorite meal. I had to stop eating them due to a nightshade sensitivity. When I could finally eat them again, The Hubster decided he didn’t like chicken. Woe was me. My life was forever changed when I took my first bite of buffalo falafel. It was a recipe that both The Hubster and I enjoyed. It wasn’t chicken. AND it was amazing to boot. I seriously wanted to eat my weight in buffalo falafel and drink the leftover buffalo sauce for dessert. We have been getting a bit tired of our usual (beef) burgers. While we both love the sriracha burgers, we were ready...

Chickpea Fries

Chickpea Fries

Ah, the humble french fry. So freakin’ delicious, yet so hard to master the art of making them at home.Β Unless, of course, you have a deep fryer. Which we do not. What I do have is a baking sheet (or two), an oven, and some chickpea flour. All perfect for making these fries. I originally saw the idea for chickpea fries from my friend, Leah.

Bean Salad with a Balsamic Vinaigrette

  Remember all of those glorious summer salads? I sincerely hope so. Otherwise, we might need to have another sort of conversation on this here blog. You know, one about memory. And…Wait. What were we talking about? Oh, right. Summer. And salads. More specifically, Salad #3. The one with those beautiful kidney beans, chickpeas, and red onions. It comes from the annals of Vegan Italiano, one of my favorite cookbooks. This is the kind of salad that fills you up, without making you feel like putting on that new bathing suit is a terrifying thing. This one is great atop a bed of greens. Or just next to them as...
