Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon vegan butter such as Earth Balance Buttery Spread
  • 1 can chickpeas (14.5 ounces) rinsed and drained (1 1/2 cups)
  • 1/4 cup cayenne pepper sauce such as Frank's RedHot Original
  • 1/2 head Romaine lettuce chopped into bit size pieces
  • 1/2 dry pint cherry tomatoes halved or quartered (or use larger tomatoes chopped)
  • 1 avocado sliced or cubed
  • other vegetable toppings such as black olives, sliced green onions, cilantro, etc. (optional)
  • 1/2 bag Beanfields Bean and Rice Chips in your favorite flavor (I like Pico de Gallo or Nacho)
  • Vegan Ranch dressing such as Hampton Creek Just Ranch or Follow Your Heart Vegan Ranch, homemade or store-bought

Instructions

  • Melt the vegan butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add the chickpeas and cayenne pepper sauce. Stir frequently until the sauce is thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • Assemble the salads in two large bowls. Add the lettuce on the bottom, then top with the tomatoes, avocados, and any other vegetables you are using. 
  • Divide the chickpeas among the two bowls.
  • Crush the Beanfields chips in your hands and sprinkle over the salad.
  • Drizzle with Ranch dressing and serve right away. Enjoy!
