  • Grill pan/Griddle


  • 1 cup strawberries halved
  • 3 Tbsp low-sodium soy sauce or coconut aminos
  • 3 cloves garlic crushed
  • 2 tsp fresh ginger grated
  • 2 Tbsp lime juice
  • 1 Tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp corn starch
  • 1 15.5 oz can of chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 2 tsp avocado oil or your preferred neutral oil
  • ½ medium red onion diced
  • salt to taste
  • 1 head of butter lettuce washed
  • cilantro and lime for garnishing


  • Cook strawberries on a heated griddle or grill pan and cook for about 1 minute on each side, until grill marks form. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  • In a small bowl, whisk soy sauce, garlic, ginger, lime juice, maple syrup, sesame oil, and corn starch until well combined. Set aside.
  • Remove extra moisture from the drained chickpeas by placing them in a clean kitchen towel and patting them dry.
  • Heat avocado oil in a medium sauté pan over medium heat, then add red onions along with a pinch of salt. Sauté the onion for about 4 minutes, until softened.
  • Add the chickpeas and sauté for an additional 5 minutes.
  • Add the prepared sauce to the chickpea mixture and cook for 1-3 more minutes, stirring occasionally, until the sauce cooks down and thickens.
  • To assemble, take one lettuce leaf and top with ½ cup of the chickpea mixture and grilled strawberries.
  • Garnish with cilantro and lime wedges.
