Ingredients

1 15-oz can chickpeas, rinsed

Zest and juice of 1 lemon

Kosher salt and Pepper

1 c. quinoa

1/2 c. tahini

1/4 c. fresh lime juice

1 tablespoon of vegan honey

1 lb. thick asparagus

1/4 c. shelled pistachios, chopped

METHOD 

  1. In a medium-sized bowl, mix the chickpeas, lemon juice and zest and some of the pepper and salt. It is best left in the fridge for a few hours to marinate and let the flavors soak into the chickpeas
  2. In a pot, cook the quinoa according to the packet  
  3. Blend the tahini, juice of the lime, half a cup of water and one-quarter of a teaspoon of vegan honey. If it seems a little too thick, add additional water until it is smoother. 
  4. With a vegetable peeler, shave asparagus into ribbons, peeling from the woody end toward the tip. In a bowl, combine cooked quinoa with asparagus ribbons, and marinated chickpeas. Sprinkle with pistachios and drizzle with tahini dressing. Serve your dish and watch it disappear.
