Several years ago in my early efforts to change my eating habits, I had a renewed mind to be more health-driven rather than just eating what I always knew. With this, I was faced with the challenge to find new ways to enjoy the foods and flavors that I already loved.
Tacos are kind of a soft spot for me. I will never say “no” to tacos. I could never get tired of them. We’ve built a long-term love affair, and I’m no quitter (not on tacos!). However, I was trying to eat cleaner, cheaper, healthier protein sources and along the way fell in love with chickpeas. Cooking them like I would taco meat, seemed like a natural fit. They turned out way better than I had imagined and when served up in lettuce boats, well…just allowed me to eat that much more of them. This is also a great recipe for those transitioning into or living a plant-based vegan lifestyle. Completely free off all the common allergens as well (nuts, dairy, soy, gluten, meat), it’s an indulgence that’s actually good for you. That, and it’s tacos…so….yay…TACOS! (your fists better be pumping the sky right now, btw).
