Minty. Light. Fresh.
This sauce was SERIOUSLY everything. Please make this, friends. You won't be disappointed!
I tried the recipe as is, but it's so versatile. I made it with a side of quinoa and some chicken, then just ended up tossing it all together. And the chicken was really unnecessary. There was so much plant-based protein already in here between the quinoa and the chickpeas!
Thank you, @themodernproper for the inspiration!
