I love one-pot meals and I love them even more if they are ready in under 30 minutes!
This bowl is a quick, easy, warming, flavorful vegan recipe packed full of nutritional benefits.
Chickpeas are one of my favorite sources of protein. One cup gives you approximately 15 grams of protein and they are also high in iron, fiber, and have a low glycemic index. And because of their mild flavor they are very versatile and can be used in all sorts of different ways. Even cookies! But that’s another post….
Cauliflower is high in Vitamin C and is also has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits and this recipe also contains spinach which is pretty much power packed with everything your body needs. Let’s get our health on!
