BBQ Chickpea Sliders
  • 1 15-oz [425-g] can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • ½ cup 120 ml BBQ sauce
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp chili powder
  • Salt to taste
  • 12 whole wheat slider buns
  • 1 cup 340 g Pineapple Slaw (recipe follows)
  • Roasted sunflower seeds for serving, optional
Pineapple Slaw
  • 1/2 ripe avocado, mashed
  • 1/3 55g crushed pineapple, drained
  • 2 tbsp 5g cilantro leaves, torn
  • 1/2 tbsp 7 ml agave
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 cups 680 g purple cabbage, shredded
  • salt and pepper, to taste
To make the Chickpea Sliders
  1. Add the chickpeas, BBQ sauce, garlic powder and chili powder to a saucepan. Cook over medium heat for 10 to 15 minutes, stirring constantly and smashing about half of the chickpeas with the back of a fork or slotted spoon. Add water 1 tablespoon (15 ml) at a time if the mixture starts sticking to the bottom of the saucepan. Remove from heat and season with salt to taste.
  2. To assemble, spread a spoonful of the BBQ chickpeas on the bottom portion of a whole wheat slider bun. Top with a scoop of Pineapple Slaw and sprinkle with roasted sunflower seeds for some extra crunch, if desired.
To make the Pineapple Slaw
  1. Combine the mashed avocado, pineapple, cilantro, agave, lime juice and apple cider vinegar in a mixing bowl. Whisk to combine, adding a bit of water to thin as necessary. Once you have a nice creaming dressing, stir in the cabbage, toss to thoroughly combine and season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately.
