Winging it…

This coming Sunday is Super Bowl Sunday, a day anticipated by many (and some of them are actual football fans). I enjoy a good commercial break myself while some are looking most forward to the buffet of Super Bowl snacks.

One of the classic Super Bowl snacks -wings (hot wings, Buffalo chicken wings) has grown particularly popular.  Did you know that if we lined up the wings eaten each Super Bowl Sunday wing tip to wing tip they would circle the earth more than twice or reach a quarter of the way to the moon?  Did you know that it takes 600 million chickens to produce that many wings?  That is two chickens for every American man, woman, and child!

My super Bowl gift to you, my recipe for Buffalo Chick’pea Roll-ups – no chickens lost their lives in the making of this snack.

Buffalo Chick’pea Roll-Ups

Just 5 ingredients (well 6 if you count the tortillas) and a little more than 5 minutes. That’s all it takes to make my favorite new roll-up!

1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed

1/4 c Nutritional yeast

1/4 c hot sauce (yes, it sounds like a lot…but trust me)

2 stalks celery, diced fine

1/2 small red onion, diced fine

5-6 small flour tortillas (6″ size or 3 larger tortillas)

Throw those chickpeas, the nutritional yeast, and the hot sauce into the food processor and process until all mushed together (a little bit chunky us okay, not trying for hummus smooth). Hand stir in the celery and onion and spread on the tortillas and roll up. Wrap each one tightly in plastic wrap or parchment paper.  If time allows, refrigerate for an hour before slicing to set the shape.  Slice each roll into 6 pieces.  Pop the irregular end pieces straight into your mouth:)

Enjoy the game!
