This is a great warming, easy and filling meal, particularly during the cooler months. Serve it alongside cauliflower rice, regular brown rice or basmati rice, and feel free to add extra vegetables.
Chickpeas are a delicious, easy and versatile legume to consume, so I try to always have them on hand. They’re high in protein, fibre, folate, Vitamin B6, B1, magnesium, iron, calcium and manganese. I often cook batches up and store them in the freezer to easily throw into meals at any time.
Chickpeas – cannelloni beans, lentils
Sweet potato – carrots, pumpkin, butternut squash
Crushed tomatoes – fresh, diced or passata
Black olives – capers, green olives
