I downloaded Happy Herbivore’s Meal plan last week and saw her Chickpea taco recipe. Immediately, I knew I had to try this. As I find most taco shells contain rather strange chemicals, and even the organic ones I could find were just too pricey, I decided to deconstruct her recipe and make it nachos instead. I am a HUGE fan of nachos, I know some of you who are as well and I’m sure you’ll appreciate this. I wish I had thought ahead to make a raw cashew sour cream. That just means there will have to be a next time.
I do urge you to try this recipe, as it was fantastic, I just made my version a little different. Instead of whole chickpeas, I mashed them up and treated them more like refried beans.
Whenever I can use my Thali plate, I love using my hands and building each chip as it’s own appetizer. Here’s my deconstructed version of chickpea tacos:
Imagine a whole plateful of these little guys? Totally fantastic. Mind you, HH’s recipe does not include corn, tomatos, or corn chips, but this is my take on things. The chickpea mixture of spices she has designed is delightful. I really enjoyed it and highly recommend you find it through her books/meal plans.
