This is my new favorite lunch. It’s quick, healthy, and soooooo filling! I fully expected to need to eat something else or be hungry again in an hour, but I was satisfied and not hungry again for hours.
I used my cilantro pesto for this recipe. There are lots of things you can do with this awesome pesto, so don’t worry about wasting it. It goes great with pasta, so you could use the rest of it for a quick and healthy dinner option. Or you could freeze it and next time you want to have this lunch, the pesto is ready to go! It is also great on sandwiches of all kinds.
The cilantro pesto, along with some fresh lime juice, make this unique smashed chickpea salad so flavorful. It’s perfect on toast. I hope you’ll give this one a try–I think you’re going to love it!
Before I get to the recipe, I want to let you know that I’m still working behind the scenes to change a few things around here. My goal is to make this site better for you. I want everything easier to find and more user-friendly. You’ll notice I have two recipe pages right now. The new framework I’m using has a great way to set up a recipe index and it will automatically add the new recipes as I post them. Wonderful! The only problem is I haven’t always categorized my recipes properly (I didn’t have a soup category, for example) so I’m having to go back and categorize old posts to make sure the recipes are showing up. So I left my old page up in the meantime so all the categories are there. Once I get all the old posts categorized, I’ll delete the old page. Make sense? I know other things are looking weird from time to time. Thanks for bearing with me as I’m doing this all on my own and I’m not exactly a computer guru. Simple tasks that should take me 10 minutes end up taking me 2 hours. But I’m getting there! In the meantime, your feedback is welcome. 🙂
All right, let’s eat some lunch!
