Menu Planning 5/5 & Chickpea Tacos

menu planning
Yes, it is Sunday and time again for menu planning, Linking up with Jill and Laura for menu planning. I am on week 2 of dairy free and success, I feel better. I think Spring is returning this week and hoping we can get back to fresh foods soon and pack away the winter eating! Off to a half marathon...

Last week I made this for a quick dinner, it was great! Easy and tasty meal idea:
Chickpea Tacos
2 cups cooked chickpeas or 1 can rinsed and drained
1-2 cups salsa (depending on how saucy you want it)
1 clove garlic minced
1 tsp cumin

Combine ingredients and simmer in pan 15 minutes or until hot. Serve with roasted veggies on taco shells or as a salad topping.

    1. I mash chickpeas, onion, garlic, basil, spinach, tomato paste + seasonings and GF breadcrumbs and roll in balls then bake. Sorry I just mix and throw things in, no recipe :) They freeze really well too.

  2. Hope the half went well this morning!! Chickpea tacos are such a good idea, yum!

    1. I changed my plans and took it easy, the end not so great, but more on that tomorrow.

  3. I LOVE this recipe! Thank you for sharing! My entire life is a vegetarian challenge..if that counts for anything ;) I have no idea what I'm making the rest of the week, but I'm making veggie nachos tonight for Cinco de Mayo!

    1. Me too, veg daily here :) I am always looking for new ways to cook to please my non veg hubby too.

  4. Great plan! I did pretty good with the veggie challenge except the last two days. I don't normally eat very much meat so I'm planning to keep the meat at mostly fish from here on out although I can't make any promises.

    The chickpea tacos sound good. On Friday the office ordered in a taco bar so I made mine with black beans and no meat. Tasted great!

    1. So glad the challenge went good! Tacos yum :)

  5. A new recipe Zucchini noodles and spicy Romesco sauce and a favorite E2 burger. WTG with your dairy free weeks!
