Can’t decide what to have for dinner tonight, but kind of feel like you want (or should) eat something healthy? This Roast Chickpea Nourish Bowl is not only going to fill you up, but is also really healthy, delicious and easy to make.
This recipe I literally made up while trying to use whatever I could find in the fridge which means it is very easy to adapt to whatever you have at home – yey!
Turmeric roast chickpeas are probably one of my favourite protein fueled snacks and I love adding them to my nourish bowls and salads. Turmeric is a very strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory and really great for you. Plus I love its colour! I’ve also added fresh tomato and spinach, roast sweet potato and zucchini as well as pumpkin and sunflower seeds. There is also some avocado and a really easy apple cider vinegar and tahini sauce.
I hope you like this recipe and if you do, please let us know and tag your creations on Instagram @nothangryanymore.
