Crisp, sweet apples and chewy chopped pecans add autumn flavor and plenty of mouth-pleasing texture to this vegan chickpea salad. Serve as is on a bed of baby spinach, with crackers as a dip or tucked into a whole wheat tortilla for a wholesome wrap.
After a full day of work, running errands and shuffling kids around, who has the time to prepare a wholesome, nutritious, non-microwaved meal? You do—that’s who! In less time than it would take for you to dial up and wait for restaurant delivery, or make it through a long fast food line, you can serve your family a fantastic meal they’ll not only love but that’s actually good for them, too.
Chickpeas, also known as garbanzos, are hearty legumes that stand up to heat better than many other beans. Enjoy their perfect texture (and the seven grams of protein one half-cup supplies!) in this slightly spicy, tomato-based soup. Sprinkle with crushed blue corn tortilla chips as a gluten-free alternative to croutons!
Using real butter in homemade mashed potatoes will set you back 11 grams of fat and 100 calories for every tablespoon mixed in! Instead, spruce up your spuds with a scoop of hummus. It not only adds unique flavor but gives everyone’s favorite creamy potato side dish an added protein boost. Use pre-made store-bought hummus to save time!
No need to let a pot simmer on the stove for hours to fix that cold-weather chili craving. This healthy dish takes just about 30 minutes, calling for a simple combination of fresh, frozen and canned ingredients. Chickpeas and shrimp are added to the mix for a hearty, protein-packed chili with subtle seafood flavor.
