Healthy Moroccan-Spiced Chickpea Bowl

So easy, takes 30 minutes to make, and is all things YUM. |
Comforting Moroccan-spiced chickpea bowls on Monday? Yeah, we’re going there. Hello, Meatless Monday.

Word on the street is a blizzard’s on its way, so I’m gearing up for it by cooking all things comforting and getting my baking ingredients all set. Because what is a blizzard without ton-zo food?

So easy, takes 30 minutes to make, and is all things YUM. |
And since we are about to get our first real snowstorm of the year, I figured it was time to post a cozier recipe. I actually made this recipe several times this past fall and was waiting for the right moment to share it.

It takes a quick 30 minutes to make, contains nourishing ingredients, is vegetarian friendly, and, oh yeah is DELISH, guys.

    Looks like an awesome recipe! I was wondering what’s the difference between this and Channa Masala (Indian chickpea dish)?
