Curry Chickpeas ‘n’ Tofu Pitas August 22, 2013

Jamie says: Ever crave something different for lunch? A meal beyond the salad or sandwich? On my day off, I was feeling like something unique- something I wouldn’t pack in a lunch box. (Although I’m sure this would be good cold, as well). I brought back an old recipe with a new twist; the Curry Peanut Tofu with Green Onions and Sun Dried Tomatoes evolved into Curry Chickpeas ‘n’ Tofu Pitas.

Ever had tofu? How about chickpeas? Give them both a try with this new take on lunch.

Curry Chickpeas ‘n’ Tofu Pitas

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. Drain liquid from tofu. Wrap in paper towels and firmly press to further drain. On a cutting board, use a knife to cut tofu into pieces slightly larger than dice. In a nonstick skillet on medium heat, add olive oil followed by cubed tofu, curry powder, and turmeric. Use a spatula to fold in seasonings. Fold in garbanzo beans and sun dried tomatoes. Cook until hot, about 5 minutes.
  2. Cut pitas in half and pull halves open. Spread pesto on the bottom halves followed by peanuts. Stuff with greens. Use a spoon to scoop hot chickpeas and tofu pita into halves. Enjoy!

Servings: 2

  • Nutrition note: Go vegetarian- for a day or a meal or two. There’s lots of protein in the tofu (soy) and garbanzo beans.
