happy herbivore’s gandhi bowl.

This super-simple, super-filling dinner is courtesy of Lindsay at Happy Herbivore! Her cookbook is amazing: we received a copy as a wedding gift and it gets a lot of use at home. 

Often, when I'm not sure what to make and when I want to make sure my husband is on board with my cooking plans for the week, I'll ask him to 'pick an ingredient'... and run with it to create a dish or find a recipe for inspiration. Yesterday, his ingredient of choice was chickpeas, which prompted me to pick up the HH cookbook for some ideas. I came across page 124: the Gandhi Bowl [filling, nutritious, gluten-free, vegan, protein-rich, colorful... it goes on and on]: it turned out amazingly! I have had some requests for sharing. Here it is -- thanks, Happy Herbivore, for your beautiful creations!

    Amy! My man-friend and I made this for dinner and it was delish! I’m super impressed and inspired by your wellness journey. I’ve been a vegetarian for about 2.5 years and am trying to be more aware of how I treat my body. Your blog is an excellent read!
