These 4 Surprising Things Happened When I Ate 40 Extra Grams of Protein a Day

Marinated Chickpeas

Adding Fibre and Protein to Salads Never Tasted So Fresh and Zesty

As a vegetarian, I live, breathe, and sleep protein-packed legumes. So it's a no-brainer to throw them into just about every meal — even my bowl of morning oatmeal or desserts like chocolate frosted doughnuts. And you'll never catch me eating a green salad without beans on top, but plain old chickpeas can taste pretty bland.

This recipe takes your salads to a whole new zesty and fresh-tasting level. In under 10 minutes, you can have chickpeas marinating in lemony-ginger goodness, with each 170-calorie serving offering 4.3 grams of fibre and 5.3 grams of protein. These soft, yellow gems offer so much bold flavour, you won't even need to add salad dressing. And we know that every calorie you can shave off your meals really adds up.

This recipe calls for marinating the chickpeas in one big batch, but you can also divide the beans into the bottoms of mason jars to use for you week of salads. Here's to never eating another boring salad again!
