You can bake them into a loaf of bread, mix them into a pancake batter, freeze them and cover them in chocolate or make them into ice cream, you can even blend them up into a smoothie…. Is there anything…
These vegan and gluten free stuffed red apples are sweet, smoky and make a healthy snack or pack along lunch for your work or school day. The combination of apple and chickpeas make this recipe high in fibre. A recipe the whole family will love.
Prepare the apples:
Slice the top off the apples and gently scoop out the core and enough of the flesh to leave ½” of apple around the circumference. A melon baller works very well for this. To prevent the apples from browning, run a lemon slice over the flesh. Set aside.
Make the chickpea salad:
In a food processor, pulse the chickpeas until they resemble coarse crumbs. Spoon the chickpeas into a medium sized bowl and add the rest of the ingredients, stirring until well combined. Season with sea salt and pepper to taste.
Spoon the chickpea salad into each apple and place the top on for presentation.
