The Chef: Lyndsay
The Menu: Lyndsay took her turn in the kitchen with The Conscious Cook and whipped up Chef Tal’s Mediterranean Chickpea Wraps. A slight change was made due to a rare lack of chickpeas, but her smart substitution of black beans worked perfectly with the flavorful combo of carrots, banana peppers, potatoes, sun-dried tomatoes, and a heat-raising blend of spices. A lovely green salad with colorful cabbage and a sprinkle of pine nuts cooled things off.The Goods: These warm wraps saved us from the dreary, drizzling rain, back with a vengeance after yesterday’s sunshine.
