Happy Herbivore 7 Day Meal Plan: Day 2, Buffalo Chickpea Pasta Salad

It’s day two of following Happy Herbivore’s weekly meal plan.  I got home about an hour later than I normally do, and by that time I was HANGRY.  Hanger is hunger + anger.  I generally end up having to apologize for the things I’ve said while hangry.  Thankfully, no one else was home when I stomped in, and I was able to whip up the Buffalo Chickpea Pasta Salad from the meal plan in fifteen minutes.  Phew!  Once I was happily stuffing my face, I watched this video three times.  I think I am all of these people when hanger strikes.

I was very pleased with this Buffalo Chickpea Pasta Salad recipe.  It was SO EASY.  Literally, boil water, chop some celery, open a can of chickpeas, and whisk together the dressing.  I used two cans of chickpeas instead of one – because I’m a hungry hungry hippo.  I also used about double the spices called for in the dressing.  Except for the hot sauce, I used about half of the called for half a cup.  That’s way too spicy for me!  Also I only had 1/4 cup of hot sauce, sooo…….

The recipe called for 10 ounces of pasta.  I legitimately have no idea how much pasta that is, so I made a whole pound.  There was enough dressing to go around.  This recipe also made four containers of leftovers!  Winning.

Tomorrow I’m thinking of making either the Barbque Tofu Nuggets and Veggies or the Thai Rice Salad.  I suppose we’ll have to see how hangry I am by the time I get home, and which one cooks up faster!
