Meal Planning 8.12.18

I’m taking the time while my family naps to write about this week’s upcoming menu. My sister had a baby on Monday, so we’re visiting them this weekend in Philly! It’s been so much fun playing with our 2 year old nephew and holding our newborn niece, but everyone needed a nap. I decided to…

Mediterranean Chickpea Salad with Tzatziki Dressing

Last night I made this light yet satisfying salad with crunchy spiced chickpeas, and an array of fresh veggies then topped it off with a creamy tzatziki dressing. It’s perfect for summer when you want something flavorful but it’s 100* outside. I used High Carb Hannah’s tzatziki recipe that I’ve posted before and it’s pretty…

Quick Chickpea and Potato Curry

After 7 hours of driving back from the beach in on and off pouring rain, I was ready to be home! It was hard to get myself unpacked and back out of the door to the grocery store but I wanted a quick and healthy home cooked meal after eating out more than usual. I…

Roasted Chickpea, Mushroom, and Kale Rice Bowl

Sometimes simplicity is key and when you have a few ingredients on hand you can easily make something filling, delicious, and healthy. I found a recipe for this on Pinterest and changed it up a bit for what I thought made it easier and it was! Instead of roasting just the chickpeas and sautéing the…

Tandoori Chickpea Buddha Bowl with Garlic Tahini Sauce

I based this recipe off of one I found on Pinterest and I adjusted it to what I thought would be good together, and you can do the same depending on your taste. I always like the combination of sweet potatoes and brussel sprouts together so I used these instead of spinach and carrots. I…

Dilly Chickpea Salad Wraps

  Anything you can do, I can do better vegan? I think so. I seriously don’t think there’s anything that we CAN’T have, and I’m loving that. Chicken salad was a staple for any girly celebration and it’s something that’s so easy to throw together for a quick lunch. I saw a recipe for Chickpea…

Lemon Rosemary Chickpea Noodle Soup

Nothing like warm, comforting soup on a chilly winter night…or a winter night almost in the 60’s. I used to make a lemon chicken orzo soup (damndelicious.net) all of the time. I used to make it for my grandpa when he was in and out of the hospital and for my friends when they felt…

BBQ Chickpea Buddha Bowl

Chickpeas are one of my favorite ways to get protein in and all of these flavors and textures sounded like they would go together really nicely for a delicious fall meal. Luckily BBQ sauce is vegan, so if you miss the taste of BBQ this recipe would be great for you. This was delicious and…

Chickpea and Veggie Stir Fry

I pretty much crave Asian all the time which annoys Josh, but it’s helpful going vegan since there is rarely any dairy involved so it’s an easy go to category. This was a quick Asian stir fry that you can be really creative with. You can swap out the veggies or use a pre-made sauce,…
