Ingredients

Buffalo Chickpeas

Ranch Dressing

  • 1/2 cup raw cashews, soaked 2 hours
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tbsp fresh parsley, minced
  • 1 tsp fresh dill, minced
  • 1 tsp fresh chives, minced

Extras

  • 8-12 large leafs of Romain Lettuce

Instructions

  • To make the buffalo chickpeas, combine hot sauce, mayonnaise, agave nectar, apple cider vinegar, and salt in a small bowl. Stir in chickpeas and celery, cover, and place in the refrigerator for at least two hours.
  • To make the ranch dressing, drain and rinse the cashews. In a food processor or high-powered blender combine cashews, water, lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, vinegar, and salt. Blend until completely smooth. Transfer to a small bowl, stir in the minced herbs, cover, and place in the refrigerator for at least one hour.
  • To assemble, place 3-4 tbsp of buffalo chickpeas inside each romaine lettuce leaf. Drizzle with ranch dressing, top with green onions and serve immediately.
  • Store chickpeas and dressing in the refrigerator for up to five days.
