Healthy Lunch: Vegan Chickpea Bruschetta


Healthy Lunch: Vegan Chickpea Bruschetta
This Chickpea Bruschetta is the perfect summer lunch recipe! Of course, bruschetta would normally be served as an appetizer, but the added protein from the beans makes this a perfect mid-day meal that takes just 5 minutes to put together. Instead of spending time chopping up fresh herbs, I used basil infused olive oil to add flavor and dimension. Your work day lunch has never felt so gourmet!
