Mushroom Chickpea Bruschetta

Chickpea Mushroom Bruschetta {Little Leopard Book}

The idea for this recipe simply came from the fact that I ended up with 6 cans of Chickpeas in my pantry and needed to free up some space!

I’m so thankful for my over-purchasing of this delicious bean because the result was this delicious new bruschetta recipe which I am completely obsessed with!

Check out my video for how to make this yummy new appetizer! Warning: Taylor Swift references and something called “chunkin’ into garlic” are included!

Doesn’t that sound delicious? Check out the full recipe below!
