These Buffalo Chickpea Bowls are not only a great family meal, but they pack really well for lunches too! Just store the dressing in a separate container until ready to eat.



Herbed Cashew & Hummus Dressing (makes 2 cups dressing)

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ cup hummus
  • ¾ cup Silk Original Cashewmilk
  • ¾ cup raw cashews
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable broth granules (or 1 vegetable bouillon, crumbled)
  • 1 tablespoon onion granules
  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh dill

Easy Buffalo Chickpeas

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons hot sauce, I like Frank’s Red Hots, divided
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 tablespoon vegan butter
  • Kosher salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cans garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained

For the bowls

  • 1 package little gems lettuce, torn by hand into bite sized pieces
  • ½ cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 1 cup shredded carrot
  • 3 stalks celery, sliced thin


Make the dressing

  1. Combine all of the ingredients in a high powered blender and blend until smooth. Taste and adjust seasonings. (If the dressing seems to thin add more cashews, to thick add more Silk Original Cashew Milk to thin.)

Make the Easy Buffalo Chickpeas

  1. In a bowl combine the olive oil, ¼ cup hot sauce, onion powder, garlic powder and paprika. Whisk to combine then add the chickpeas and toss to coat. Heat a skillet over medium heat, once warm add the chickpea mixture to the pan. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally and gently mashing some of the chickpeas to create texture, until the chickpeas have absorbed the liquid and start to appear dried out. Add the vegan butter, stir to melt and allow the chickpeas to soak up the buttery sauce completely, about 3-5 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the remaining 2 tablespoons of hot sauce.

Build your bowl

  1. Divide the lettuce between 4 bowls. Mix in onion, carrot and celery, tossing to combine. Divide the warm Easy Buffalo Chickpeas between the bowls and season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately with the prepared dressing.
