This weekend the Hubz and I took a whirlwind trip to Massachusetts to do a little Ikea, Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s and Target shopping. We picked up a few things for the nursery and found out that 70% of the items I had put on our nursery vision board just didn’t live up to our expectations. I am glad we found this out now and not in March when we head to Boston.
On the ride home we stopped in to Whole Foods and I started craving hot sauce really bad, one of my weird pregnancy cravings, and I got to thinking what about a buffalo chickpea dip? I first thought of using Sour Supreme to make it creamy but I really wanted to avoid the soy and then I spotted the So Delicious Coconut Greek Yogurt and I decided to pick up a plain and try it in my dip.
The verdict? I loved the coconut Greek yogurt in this! I would recommend this recipe for your upcoming Super Bowl or Oscar Party it is sure to be a hit!
2-15oz cans of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1/4 cup hot sauce (I use Franks)*
1 container SoDelicious Plain Greek Yogurt**
2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried onion flakes
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
2. Place 1 cup of the chickpeas in the base of a food processor with the hot sauce and process until smooth and pour into a medium bowl.
3. Add all of the remaining chickpeas and remaining ingredients to the bowl and mix to combine.
4. Pour the chickpea mixture into individual ramekins or into an oven safe dish. Place in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes until hot and bubbly.
5. Serve with veggies (I suggest celery) and pita, crackers or tortilla chips.
*If you desire less heat reduce the amount of hot sauce and substitute non-dairy milk or water.
**Can’t find coconut Greek yogurt? No Problem! Substitute non-dairy sour cream!
Update: Hubz ate the leftovers today and said they were even better than the first day, that being said if you have the time mix the dip the day before, refrigerate overnight and bake off right before eating.
