Indian Chickpea Buddha Bowl
Chickpeas in a curried sauce with brown rice, sauteed garlic spinach and broccoli. This is an easy, highly nutritious main course packed with protein and fibre. Buddha bowls are very fluid and you can add your favorite veggies and grains. Here I've added some broccoli which aids in detoxification and goes well with the curry. The cabbage gives it some freshness and crunch.

Curried chickpeas
  1. Heat the coconut oil in a large frying pan.
  2. Add the onions, garlic, and grated ginger and cook on a medium heat for about 5-10 minutes.

  4. Add all the spices and cover with the water.
  5. Bring to the boil and then simmer. Cook until the vegetables are soft.
