Chickpea Tacos

One of my favorite omni meals was homemade taco's. I recently decided to try chickpea taco's. Man am I glad I did. These are fantastic and kids will love them too. Super easy to make too. Now, since I have given up consuming animals, I have been struggling to find a good alternative to moo moo. There are many options to a meat alternatives but ground up chickpeas
for taco meat are amazing. Chickpeas are super healthy too. There is 15 grams of protein in 1 cup. Among other health benefits, they are a great fiber source too.

This is my recipe but you can adjust however you like.
2 cups of chickpeas
3 - 4 tbsp of organic taco seasoning
romaine leaves or lettuce of your choice
chopped tomato
and whatever else you like on your tacos

In a food processor add the chickpeas and seasoning. Pulse till crumbly. Do not over pulse or it will ruin the texture. Add this mixture to a heated frying pan and add a tbsp of water at a time to moisten the seasoning. Do not add too much or the chickpeas will become pasty.

Once heated, fill up your lettuce leave and add your favorite toppings. Enjoy.
