    The liquid in chickpeas out of a can gives me the worst, most painful gas I've ever had in my life. Either rinse them really well or boil your own. I'm sure any vegan can confirm what I've said.

    Every time I watch BA videos, they remind me so much of Shokugeki no Souma for some weird reason. Like IRL Shokugeki no Souma with cooking facts and stuff. It’s amazing

    Chickpeas are somewhere around 75% carbs. They are definitely not all protein.

    Says it's "healthy-ish" ... proceeds to drop 700+ calorie chickpea sandwiches.

    • N Kemp
      N Kemp 11 days ago

      Theyre still nutrient dense, and as someone that works long hours in a kitchen, a big 700 calorie lunch could sometimes be my only meal for the day, so I'll happily take one with a lot of legumes and veggies and good fats over some convenience-store snacks or a protein shake.

    There is unborn baby chicken in there so that's not a vegan....

    • N Kemp
      N Kemp 11 days ago

      And also, chicken eggs you get at the store arent fertilized, so they were never gonna hatch into a baby chicken. No ones making you eat eggs, but dont call them something theyre not.

    • N Kemp
      N Kemp 11 days ago

      The DRESSING is vegan. You can make it at home and not put eggs on it. They made this recipe crazy simple for you to make vegan, but instead you wanna complain

    "Does anyone still cook with onion powder and garlic powder?"
    Yeah....almost every day. I use a lot of fresh onions and garlic when a recipe calls for it, but I'll add onion, garlic powder, black pepper, (and sometimes celery seed) to any/everything.

    No Chris, my kids don't hide the blender parts, my husband It's loud and I make frosty drinks. :D Oh, and said same hubby is why I still use powdered onion and garlic. He needs the flavor but hates the chunks... Giant pain in the backside.

    If you don't like capers you can sub in some finely diced dill pickles or "yum-yums" if you like a little sweetness added to the mix.
    If you want a chickpea filling reminiscent off an egg salad sandwhich you can add a bit of black salt for eggie-ness flavour and a little turmeric for a more "eggie" colour.

  • Miguel Valero Arcia

    Screw everyone (myself) talking about the moment Chris talks about his wife. I'm just here to bring you a drinking game where you have to take a shot every other time he says "kinda like".

    No joke garlic powder is my Super Sauce, not a sauce but you know what I mean.
    My fave combo for literally anything is vegeta seasoning, garlic powder, Cayenne pepper(a lot of it, I love spicy food) and herbs de provence. Put that stuff generously on potatoes with oil, and roast em, BOMB!
