Yield: 2 Servings      Prep time: 10 mins      Cook time: 10 mins      Total time: 20 mins


  • 1 -19 oz can chickpeas (2 cups), drained and rinsed
  • ½ cup BBQ sauce
  • 6 cups romaine lettuce (two romaine hearts), chopped
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 cup cucumber, sliced
  • 1 cup corn kernel (fresh or frozen and thawed)
  • ¼ red onion, thinly sliced
  • 6 tablespoons of ranch dressing
  • Lime wedges for garnish


  1. Add the chickpeas to a saucepan with the BBQ sauce and put over medium heat.
  2. Let the chickpeas simmer in the sauce for about 5 to 10 minutes until the sauce thickens and sticks to the chickpeas. Remove from heat.
  3. Divide the lettuce among two large bowls. Then divide all of the vegetable and the BBQ chickpeas on top of the lettuce. Pile each ingredient in its own section so it looks pretty, but you can arrange it however you like.
  4. Drizzle with creamy vegan ranch dressing and garnish with a wedge of lime.
