I don't know about you, but I am always on the lookout for quick, easy, and nutritious meals I can make with ingredients I already have at home. That's why I couldn't be more excited to team up with Albertson's/Safeway to bring you today's recipe as part of their Cans Get You Cooking showcase.
From delicious recipes and meal solutions to nutrition and sustainability information, Cans Get You Cooking showcases the nutrition, freshness and flavor that canned foods offer. With a well-stocked pantry —or Cantry— you can get through the week with creative healthy, homemade meals.
Personally, having a well stocked Cantry has always been one my strategies for avoiding unhealthy takeout or drive-throughs when I don't have time to run to the market. I find that with a few nutritious canned items combined with some fresh ingredients I have on hand, I can make a delicious meal that’s healthy and tasty. And that was the inspiration for today’s recipe.
Using canned artichoke hearts, chickpeas, and black olives paired with some fresh tomatoes, parsley, cucumbers, and Greek yogurt (things I almost always have at home), this Mediterranean Chickpea Flatbread makes the perfect quick lunch or dinner. It only takes about 20 minutes to make from start to finish, and is packed with good for you ingredients.

- 14 oz. can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
- 2 tbsp. olive oil, divided
- 1 tsp. paprika
- 1 tsp. oregano
- 1/2 tsp. cumin
- 1/4 tsp. coriander
- 14 oz. canned artichoke hearts (drained and chopped)
- 4 oz. canned sliced black olives, drained
- 2 U tomatoes, chopped
- 1 U English cucumber, diced
- 1/2 cup parsley, chopped
- 1 tbsp. red wine vinegar
- 1/2 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
- 1/4 cup fresh dill (or 2 tbsp. dried)
- 1 U lemon (juice and zest)
- 4 U reduced calorie pita bread (or flatbread around 100 calories each)
- Salt and pepper
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Toss the chickpeas with 1 tbsp. olive oil, paprika, oregano, cumin, coriander, salt, and pepper. Place on a foil lined baking sheet. Roast for 12-15 minutes or until a bit crispy on the outside but still tender inside.
During the last 5-7 minutes, place the pita/flatbread directly on the oven rack to crisp it up.
Meanwhile toss together the artichoke hearts, olives, tomatoes, cucumber, parsley, 1 tbsp. olive oil, and red wine vinegar. Season with salt and pepper.
Make the herbed yogurt by combining the yogurt, dill, lemon juice, lemon zest, salt, and pepper.
Assemble the flatbread by layering the veggies, chickpeas, and adding a dollop of herbed yogurt.
