Recipe

One of my dear friends is basically obsessed with caesar anything but is starting to burn out when it comes to the traditional salad. While normally I would suggest a chicken caesar sandwiches or wraps, she is a vegetarian so that wouldn't work for her. However why not a delicious, healthy, caesar veggie burger! Chickpeas seemed like the right place to start since they take on flavor really well. Then all you really need some light caesar dressing, some Parmesan cheese, and a little kale for some greens. Delicious, healthy, and freezer friendly.
