This Cauliflower Chickpea Curry Stew is an easy option for Meatless Monday or simply a delicious plant-based meal for any day of the week! It comes together in less than 30 minutes and makes a batch large enough for the whole family!
If you are part of the lovely All Nutrition community on Instagram, you will know that I share a weekly meal plan every Sunday. I make a point to include a meatless Monday option for anyone who follows a vegetarian or vegan diet, or if someone is just looking to increase their intake of plant-based meals. The research shows us that by incorporating more of these plants into our diet, we are doing good for our overall health and that of the planet.
Since we are still in the month of January, the New Year’s resolutions are a big focus for some. I want to reiterate the importance of realistic and sustainable goals. All too often, “healthy eating” is portrayed as an “all or nothing” approach, without room for flexibility and enjoyment. But when we take the angle of including all foods, especially the ones that we truly love, we can achieve the healthy lifestyle that makes us feel good mentally and physically!
So if the goal is to include more plant-based meals, this can be done in a variety of ways. Take it slow! Start with one meal per week and go from there. This could look like swapping out taco meat for lentils or choosing a veggie burger instead of a beef burger. You could also try this Cauliflower Chickpea Curry Stew and I promise you won’t miss the meat at all.
If you are looking for more vegetarian inspiration, don’t forget to follow along on Instagram and sign up to my mailing list. I send a monthly email with 5 dinner meals (including at least one plant-based), as well as a breakfast and a snack recipe.
Now let’s get back to today’s meatless meal…
This Cauliflower Chickpea Curry Stew not only tastes delicious, but packs a ton of nutrients and health benefits!
In just three of the ingredients of this recipe, you are providing your body with so many beneficial nutrients! And doing so in a way that satisfies your taste buds and appetite. Yes please!
One of my favourite things about this recipe is how easy it is. It may look a bit intimidating with the number of spices, but once you have them, you are set for a while! When you’re short on time and energy is running low, this stew should be your go-to. Another benefit is the amount made. Cook it to feed a hungry family or use it for several leftovers for yourself. It is also freezer-friendly if you want to save it for a cold and lazy day. Either way, many meals will be enjoyed from this one batch.
I hope you love this cozy and filling plant-based meal!
