Ahhhh…power bowls. I feel like myself again. Not that I don’t love Mini Pumpkin Pies and Holiday Gift Guides, but power bowls are like my home base and LIFE. Especially during this crazy Thanksgiving to Christmas transition, where people half heartedly want to eat healthy but the holidayyyyyysssss….yeah. I get it, friend. I’m right there with ya! Today, I present to you the most festive power bowl of all. Say hello to the delicious Vegan Winter Spiced Chickpea Power Bowl!
It’s everything savory, a touch a sweet, a lot of wholesome, and loaded with fall/winter flavor. Basically all of the best things in life! And 100% appropriate for the season (not only because of it’s holiday taste, but because of how easy it is to make! As in 30 minutes or less easy, y’all)!
This whole power bowl obsession began earlier this year when I decided to start loading up on turmeric with these Vegan Turmeric Quinoa Power Bowls (which also happens to be my MOST popular recipe here on Jar Of Lemons)! Through that delicious recipe I discovered how nutritious and easy to make these bowls can truly be. They’re balanced in healthy carbs, fat, and protein as well as loaded with vitamins! Soon after that I created the Turmeric Tahini & Roasted Beets Power Bowls, and now I’m completely obsessed with this Vegan Winter Spiced Chickpea Power Bowl!
This Vegan Winter Spiced Chickpea Power Bowl can be made in 30 minutes or less!
Here are a few things you’ll need:
- 2 Cookie Sheets
- Organic Cumin (SOOOOO GOOD ON EVERYTHING)
- Pre-cut sweet potatoes (optional, but makes life so much easier. You can buy them frozen, too!)
The cumin takes this recipe to another level, y’all. Especially when it’s combined with cinnamon and allspice. I’m obsessed with this power bowl these days!
