BBQ Chickpeas & Hummus Dressing

After I posted this meal up on social media I got so many requests for details on how I make my BBQ chickpeas and hummus dressing.  You guys wanted quick and simple recipes, well you’ve got it!  In our home we need fast and easy dishes because we’re always on the go (I’m a busy mom who is constantly loosing her shit, not a personal chef).

And for those of you having a hard time incorporating veggies in your daily meals, mastering some plant based sauces/dressings is the best way to make any dish extremely flavorful.

BBQ Chickpeas
  • 1 Can Organic Chickpeas (Rinsed & Drained)
  • 3-4 Tbsp BBQ Sauce
  • 1/4 Cup Chopped Onion
Hummus Dressing
  • 2 Tbsp Hummus
  • 1 Tbsp Water
  • 1/2 Small Lemon (Squeeze Juice)
  • Salt & Pepper (To Taste)
  • Dash Garlic Powder (Skip garlic if using Garlic Hummus)
BBQ Chickpeas
  1. Sautee onions on a skillet (I used Trader Joe’s coconut oil spray). Once they begin to caramelize, add chickpeas and BBQ sauce. Cook on skillet until sauce becomes tacky. Here I paired the chickpea mixture with rice, sautéed broccoli and chopped spinach. Feel free to use whole wheat pasta and any veggies of your choice. You can also put the chickpeas in a wrap with some lettuce, tomato and avocado for a delicious lunch option!

Hummus Dressing
  1. Combine ingredients and whisk until smooth.

Recipe Notes

That’s it. Simple right? Bet you didn’t think it would be that easy. This dressing also tastes delicious over salads. Eating plant based is not only so healthy and nutritious, but you can make some amazing meals with just a few ingredients!
