Curried Chickpea and Vegetable Wrap

If you’ve never used collard green leaves as a wrap for your sandwiches, let this recipe be your inspiration. Rolled up like a burrito, these wraps give your sandwich a boost of nutrients, a crunchy and refreshing texture, and a low-carb, gluten-free way to enjoy a meal.

I love curried chickpeas, because they have an egg salad or chicken salad like consistency without the dairy. They’re packed with protein, vitamins, and I always have a can of chickpeas in my pantry and a tub of tahini, so it’s easy to whip up. The chickpeas are mashed and mixed with basic pantry and fridge ingredients and topped with spiralized veggies, avocado, and wrapped up in the collard green leaf.

These sandwiches are easy to make and work well also stuffed in between your favorite bread slices – I love using a hearty multigrain bread with some hummus and greens (like a spinach or spring mix) and enjoying it that way.

The curried chickpeas save in the refrigerator for 2-3 days, but are best enjoyed fresh! Top with some spiralized cabbage, maybe some alfalfa sprouts – whatever you’re in the mood for!

If you can’t find carrots large enough to spiralize, just use a vegetable peeler or julienne peeler. Choose your own adventure!

You have "named" all the types of noodles that your Inspiralizer can make: ribbons, fettuccine, linguine, and spaghetti. It would be nice if you could include that in your recipes for those of us who have the original spiralizer that you recommended, and not yours. It seems it would be simple enough to say: 1 large red bell pepper, Blade A (ribbons), noodles trimmed. I hope you will consider this. Thank you.

my 2020 holiday gift guide is finally live on the blog! 🎁 you’ll find my picks For Her (like this cute velvet puffer!), For Him, For Toddlers, and Under $50. but let me leave this disclaimer here: it’s the thought that counts. gift giving is supposed to spread joy - don’t get caught up searching the internet for hours for the “perfect gift.” the perfect gift is simply something thoughtful 💓 and frankly, our good health is the best gift we could all ask for this year 🖤 but if you need some more inspiration, check out my stories for swipe ups or go straight to Inspiralized.com! 😘 #holidaygiftideas #holidaygiftguide ...

a festive seasonal snack or dessert idea for you and your little ones 🍎 - these french toast apple slices were inspired by my grandmother and this apple butter, cinnamon, maple syrup toast situation she used to make with her famous applesauce. you can grab this recipe from #inspiralizedandbeyond! ⁣

tell me how everyone's doing on their thanksgiving prep - ready? haven't even started yet? I haven't bought a single thing yet! 😇😱🤡
...

the holidays are going to be very tough and emotional for many of us this year. we're not going to spend it with the loved ones we typically do to keep one another safe and even worse, some of us will miss family we've lost to the COVID virus. 💔⁣

something that always cheers me up is food. I've come to realize that one of the reasons it has this therapeutic effect on me is because it's a safe space for me to block out everything else and just enjoy the art of cooking. 🥄⁣

and I realize that this will not be helpful to everyone ("oh, ali, I can't just cook it all way!"), but if it does, try to get in the kitchen and cook (or bake!) something that brings you happiness. and if it does not and you're sad right now, that's okay too. it's okay to not feel okay. 🙏🏼 I wish I could help more, but in the meantime, my love, strength, and heart goes out to you. I'm thinking of you.⁣

but, IF food and cooking is cathartic for you too, I encourage you to make something new this year for Thanksgiving (or over whatever holiday you celebrate.) sometimes following steps in a new recipe keeps your brain focused on the task and you're able to let everything else wash away. at least that's how it is for me! I'm flipping through my cookbooks and sharing some of my favorite holiday-friendly recipes over on stories, like this one from #InspiralizedandBeyond! 📚⁣
