Vegan Buffalo Chickpea Salad












I don’t know about you, but I love all things buffalo. To be honest though, I had an aversion to all things spicy for as long as I can remember. I’m not sure why, but I just hated anything with heat as I couldn’t tolerate it. 


Today, I love everything with heat and its almost like salt to me. It’s a component in recipes that just always works! 


In keeping with tradition to bring you at least 1-2 really quick and easy concepts per week, I knew I had to share this recipe! This little beauty was actually on my bucket list for quite a long time, but I kept overlooking it given it’s simplicity. 


However, if there is one thing I have learned in the past year, its that people love effortless more than anything. Even if it’s a no brainer, it makes it more approachable and ultimately gets people in the kitchen, which is my objective!








What I love about this chickpea salad, is everything! It’s quick, easy, you can modify the heat, it perf on bread or you can blend into a “hummus” and enjoy with veggies, the ingrains are accessible, affordable, it can easily be made in bulk, perf for entertaining, non vegan approved, and a buffalo lovers dream!




If you’re searching for that effortless vegan salad sammie or a quick dip that doesn’t disappoint, you have to try my recipe for Buffalo Chickpea Salad with blue cheese slaw!










Why this recipe is great: 







Great for entertaining

Can be made into a dip 

Non vegan approved
