I've been a vegetarian for about 3 1/2 years now (well technically a pescetarian), but there are still things I miss from my meat eating days. One of those things is hot wing sauce. In no way do I miss the meat it was smothering, but I love the spicy deliciousness of the sauce. Needless to say, I was really excited when I found this Spicy Buffalo Chickpea Salad recipe over at Perry's Plate. I cut the recipe in half which was enough for Joel and me. I followed the recipe pretty closely, however I used Wing Time buffalo wing sauce and added generous amounts of Habanero powder. I also used goat cheese because we had some in the fridge, but I think blue cheese would have worked much better. Lastly, there was too much dressing. Joel was standing behind me encouraging me to add more and I foolishly listened. On the other hand though, he loved it and added even more to his own salad once I dished it out.
One of these days I'll get crafty and come up with my own recipes. I fear you won't see many successes though and I'll have to add a category titled "Katie's Cooking Failures."
