Recipe :: Vegan Tacos

This is a quick and easy take on the classic taco.

Ingredients:
1 can chickpeas
½ cup chopped cilantro
1 lime
Grapeseed Oil
Chili powder
Cumin
Black Pepper
Salt
Corn Tortilla

Directions:
I placed some grapeseed oil in a medium saucepan and brought it to medium heat.  To it I added the chickpeas, which I drained first and began to sauté them.  While they were sautéing, I added the seasonings (add according to your tastes).  I did this for about 10-15 minutes with the goal of heating the chickpeas all the way through.  Just before taking them off of the heat, I added in the chopped cilantro and squeezed in lime juice from the lime.  I left them on the heat for maybe 2-3 minutes and them removed from the heat.

On a griddle, I added a little bit of olive oil and threw on three corn tortillas on top.  After about 5 minutes, I flipped them over and cooked them for another 5 minutes and placed them on a paper towel.

You can garnish your tacos with anything you want, roasted veggies, sprouts, salsa, you name it.  All together, it only took about 30 minutes to make these tacos.

    Looks delish! I will have to try sprouts on our tacos next time we make them!

      I love using sprouts in place of lettuce! I do it with sandwiches and chilli too.
