This recipe uses cooked chickpeas – you can definitely used canned chickpeas, just make sure to drain and rinse the first. I have a foolproof way of cooking No-soak dried chickpeas in the Instant Pot, which is my go-to way to cook beans. For about $1 you have a whole week’s worth of plant protein for lunch.

  • Chickpeas / Garbanzo Beans: call ’em what you like, these lil beans are a great pantry staple (I always keep dried and cooked on hand!) and offer some excellent plant protein.
  • Avocado: For a healthy fat, that is also creamy and all natural!
  • Mustard: Use prepared yellow mustard or whole ground, whatever strikes your fancy.
  • Relish: This is the secret ingredient for a little sweetness and acidity. Use any version you want, sweetened or unsweetened.
  • Roasted Red Peppers: these guys come in cute little jars so I always have a few hanging out in my pantry. They are fairly inexpensive so I like to stock up and throw them in sandwiches or wraps for some color.
  • Veggies: while these aren’t exactly pantry staple ingredients, you can totally skip these if you don’t have them on hand. Celery keeps for a long time, so I always have a bunch in the fridge – you can substitute an onion for the celery. And use dried parsley if you don’t have fresh.
