Or dare I say for those of us who want to intermittent fast our way to health, weight loss and success – LINNER. Dunch? Where did I witness this discussion, it was life changing. You know how sometimes you feel: I’ll never get those 5 minutes back? = that discussion.
How To Make Vegan Quesadillas With Chickpeas
Now I realized these shouldn’t be called quesadillas, right? There’s no cheese in there. Oh, well.
Well, basically you put some chickpeas with herbs, spices and vegetables in your food processor – pulse until combined, but not smooth – chunky. Place the mixture on one side of a tortilla, fold and then toast that thing in a pan with some olive oil. Until golden brown. I like GOOOOLD. Goldmember? Anyone?…
Then you flip, toast again until Goldmember is happy and then take it out. Place on a cutting board – cut and then eat. Sooo good!
I hope you enjoy this healthy vegan dinner recipe as much as me and my sister did – we didn’t leave anything for anyone else. Not even my year old nephew. But hey, these are spicy – he cannot have them.
