There's increasingly more evidence to support the benefits of a plant based diet.
In our home, we try to incorporate a plant based diet, as much as we can, during the week and have animal protein on the weekends.
This recipe is very easy to make and is full of nutrients from the high vegetable content and protein from the chickpeas. The amazing aromas of ginger and cinnamon will certainly please the entire family!
