Cooking with Peapod – Smashed Chickpeas with Naan

I developed this smashed chickpeas with naan recipe as part of an ongoing Brand Ambassadorship with Peapod. All opinions are 100% mine.

When I think of a stay-cation, ideas of me in a fuzzy robe, eating clean and drinking tea start to ping around in my brain. Enter this bad boy, an idea that hit me a couple of weeks ago. I love eating vegetarian meals for lunch and on the rare occasion that I am home for lunch during the week or weekend, this smashed chickpea stunner will be a mainstay lunch meal for me.

I love the way that chickpeas and all legumes for that matter make me feel. I find they don’t weigh me down but are still full of protein so it’s just enough to get me over the hump of the day. I added a generous teaspoon of garam masala which is a spice mixture chock full of warm flavors like cumin and nutmeg and with fresh grated ginger, this flavor combination dresses up even the most boring can of chickpeas!

Head on over to Peapod to grab the recipe here and get to smashin’ those chickpeas taking up space in your pantry! And for more vegetarian friendly recipes, check out this recipe and this one too! smashed chickpea naan 1 smashed chickpea naan 2 smashed chickpea naan 4 smashed chickpea naan 3

    I bought all the ingredients for this, but I have a question. Can I make the chickpea mixture a day ahead, and then spread it on the naan the next day? If so, is there anything, such as the lemon juice, that I should leave out and then add at the last minute? Thanks!

      Hi Gary! You can definitely make this a day ahead and no need to omit any ingredients. The longer it sits in the fridge the better it all becomes! So excited you’re making this, hope you enjoy it!!
