Do your lunches need a makeover? For me, lunch has always been a tricky one.
When I would go to work everyday and pack my lunch, I always felt a little disappointed when I would open my lunch and see a lack luster meal staring back at me. I absolutely LOVE lunch, but it’s so hard to pack enough and something that will hold up when you go to work. So today I have a quick and easy lunch recipe to spice up your lunchtime. It’s super easy and requires little more than a blender and a mixing bowl. This is one of my frequent go-to recipes!
Chickenless Salad Wrap
1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
2 tsp dried cranberries
2 tsp walnuts, sliced into small chunks
2 tbsp vegenaise
1/2 apple, sliced into small chunks
1 celery stalk diced
2 tsp dried rosemary
1 tsp garlic powder
pinch of salt
Pulse chickpeas in a blender until mashed slightly, but not completely smooth. Add all ingredients into a bowl. Mix well. Adjust to taste.
You can eat this on its own, or in a sandwich. I prefer it in a brown rice wrap.
To assemble: if possible, heat wrap so it’s easier to roll. Place mixed greens on wrap and top with chickenless salad. Add as much as you would like. Roll up wrap and enjoy! Again with this one, bring the salad, greens, and wrap separately and assemble right when you are ready to eat. I find this is one of the keys to keeping lunch as fresh as when you pack it.
There you go! A quick and tasty lunch recipe to try in the next few weeks. What are your favorite go-to lunches?
