How to make the buffalo chickpeas

We’re not really “making” the chickpeas. It’s more like combining a can of drained chickpeas with spices and buffalo sauce, then mixing & slightly smashing them. Give them some time to cool down in the fridge, then get to working on the vegan ranch!

How to make vegan ranch dressing

I used the same ranch dressing recipe for my Pretzel Crusted Tempeh Salad and it is now my go-to way to make it.

Grab some vegan mayo, olive oil, a handful of spices, garlic, fresh parsley and apple cider vinegar. Give everything a blend in the food processor, then add water (or non-dairy milk) to thin it until it reaches your desired thickness. That’s it folks.

How to assemble Buffalo Chickpea Lettuce Wraps

When you are ready to assemble, layer each romaine leaf with some of the chickpeas, carrots, red onion, avocado, cilantro and a drizzle of vegan ranch. You can either prep these ahead of time OR keep the ingredients separate and load up the romaine right before you eat.

These have the perfect amount of spice, crunch and creaminess.
