Happy December, friends! Ok, well, technically last week’s Income Report was the first post of December, but this is the first food post….so, yeah. Happy December 😉
Are you in the holiday spirit yet? Not-so-secret confession: I’ve been majorly in the holiday spirit since pretty much October. Like, literally before Halloween was even here. Everyone made fun of me for it (and by everyone I mainly mean CODY 🙄), but I just couldn’t help myself! I was over here making all the Gluten Free Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies, Slow Cooker Mexican Hot Chocolate, Creamy Garlic Mashed Red Potatoes, and Easy Gingerbread French Toast Bake. I mean, can you blame me??
P.S: YES, that photo was taking in our brand new #EdnaTheHouse kitchen!! It’s finally done, y’all. If you’ve been following along on my personal Insta and the kitchen renovation, you know how happy I am about this (haha). I’ll post a full update soon!
Admittedly, I might have gotten into this whole holiday thing a tad early. And now….well….I’m paying the consequences with a little bit of holiday burn out. I mean, not totally, I don’t think my Christmas obsession could ever truly go away. But these Vegan Chickpea & Sweet Potato Bowls in the midst of all of the holiday recipes and madness just feel….right. 🙂 Ya know?
These Vegan Chickpea & Sweet Potato Bowls are vegetarian, gluten free, and so easy to make!
Is a recipe even necessary? Probably not! I literally made these with whatever vegetables and grains I had in my fridge + chickpeas for protein. So delicious!
There are so many ways to make these bowls. They’re also really similar to these Vegan Turmeric Quinoa Power Bowls! So if you liked that recipe, you’ll really love this one as well. Also, I recommend topping power/nourish bowls like these with tahini! It gives it a creaminess that just brings all of the flavors together. I definitely recommend keeping tahini on hand for bowls!
A few other notes about this recipe: use canned chickpeas and pre-cut sweet potatoes if possible! In the video below I went ahead and cut my own sweet potatoes, but buying them pre-cut from the store saves a lot of time and energy 😉
