Eating a plant-based diet can sometimes be difficult. Often times you find yourself resorting to the same foods time and time again. There are only so many ways to eat beans so sometimes you need to look outside of your bean burrito box.
This next recipe is with garbanzo beans. Not such a shocking ingredient, but it works well with the relish. The “pickle” flavor reminds you of a deli, without the luncheon meat. Hooray for that.
I think this would be great on a bed of mixed greens or as I have done, on a flatbread wrap.
