I'm a Geekster and that's okay

I just changed my byline from:
Ramblings of a future eccentric in a post-modern technological internet society.
Ramblings of a Geekster in a post-modern technological internet society.
What is a geekster, you might ask? You can thank Wired for the newish term.
Geek + Hipster - retro = Geekster

Middle-Eastern Style Chickpea Wrap

This recipe goes out to my friend deadgrrl, who is a nega-carnivore.

Cucumber Pico De Gallo
  • 1 Red Onion, chopped
  • 1 Cucumber, chopped
  • Cilantro, chopped
  • 1 Lime, juiced
  • 2 Tomatoes, chopped
  • Dash of Salt
  • 1tsp Whole Red Pepper (Jalapenos would have been my first choice)

Mix, shake, combine, etc, etc.

So what do you do with this cucumber goodness?

Middle-Eastern Style Chickpea Wrap
  • Tortillas
  • 1 Can of Chickpeas
  • Ranch Dressing
  • Parmasean Cheese or Monterey Jack
  • Curry powder
  1. Toast a tortilla.
  2. Microwave the chickpeas sans can for 2 minutes.
  3. Put on the tortilla the warm chickpeas, then the pico. Cover with a bit of dressing and cheese and curry powder.
  4. Wrap and enjoy!

Note: I made pork and beef burgers with onions and curry in them to wrap in this manner, but substituting the meat with the chickpeas was mucho better.
