Ingredients

  • 15 oz can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 large carrot, diced

  • 1 Tbsp plus 1/2 tsp lemon juice, divided
  • 1/2 Tbsp tahini

  • Romaine or Bibb leaves for serving

Directions

1.) Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and add the oil. Once it begins to shimmer, add the chickpeas, spreading them in a single layer, and let cook undisturbed for 1 to 2 minutes, or until they brown a bit. Stir, add the garlic and salt, and cook for a minute more.
2.) Transfer the chickpeas to a large bowl and add 1/4 cup carrots and 1/4 cup celery. Fold in the Frank’s, yogurt, 1 Tbsp lemon juice, and tahini; stir gently until combined.
3.) In a separate bowl, toss the remaining diced celery and carrots with the remaining 1/2 tsp lemon juice and set aside.
4.) To serve the chickpeas, top them with blue cheese (if using), the reserved celery and carrots, and a big handful of celery leaves. Scoop the salad onto a lettuce leaf, wrap, and dig in.
