|Salad full of pleasing ingredients.|
Well, to Virtual Vegan Linky Party and 4th Vegan Mofo day, I bring this yummy versatile salad. It has ample protein in four major ingredients. A whole can of chickpeas contain 21 grams, one serving of Beyond Meat's Grilled Chicken has 19 grams, handful of walnuts has 7, and nutritional yeast has 8 grams. Not to mention spinach adds a bit too.
Two servings, enough to please both Popeye and Olive Oil, slightly smashed chickpeas provides great background to Beyond Meat's amazing pea protein chicken. I think any of their strips would do. They are on sale for $4.49 at Whole Foods plus an $1 off coupons are featured in latest coupon book. Yay! Savory, crunchy-tastic walnuts bring on texture and nutritional yeast add that spazzy cheesy taste. Of course, I then added Treeline nut cheese and nom nom nom.....
