Here is an easy vegan lunch that everyone can enjoy. All you need is a can of chickpeas, some olive oil, and seasonings. After washing off my chickpeas I roughly mash them adding some olive oil to make it hold together loosely. Along with salt and pepper I add juniper berries that I smash up in a mortar and pestle until they are chunky smaller pieces. One time in Italy we had a delicious side dish of white beans and juniper berries and they add a surprising flavor to beans. Their fragrance is reminiscent of a gin and tonic!
Stuff this all in a toasted whole wheat pita with lettuce and tomato and you have a delicious vegan lunch that even meat eaters will enjoy. John is always trying to a pinch a bit of my chickpea mixture!
