Ingredients for this Olive & Chickpea Smash Recipe

  • No Salt Added Chickpeas: chickpeas are one of my favorite pantry staple proteins! I’d recommend only using no salt added canned chickpeas.
  • Lemon Juice
  • Kalamata Olives: make sure they are pitted! I love the rich briny flavor of these herby kalamata olives, which have a purple hue and a really nice flavor.
  • Green Olives with Pimiento: classic green olives have a great color and delicious earthy flavor.
  • Bell Pepper: If you don’t have fresh peppers, these sweet roasted red peppers are a great substitute! I love adding them to breakfast bakes, sandwiches or wraps, and soups.
  • Parsley
  • Black Pepper
  • Bread, wrap, or bagel
