A sweet treat without the guilt!

Protein and vegetables in a truffle? Yes! Try it. Just try it once…

I’m eating the last of the ones I photographed…I should call my husband and share… But they are so good it’s hard to resist…
This microgreen and chickpea recipe will become a family tradition- it’s that good! By the way- chickpea and garbanzo bean are two names for the same bean. So if you cannot find chickpeas, look for garbanzo beans.

Clarification: if you are using canned chickpeas, be sure to drain them before using.
