Same old veggies?

SPICE THINGS UP!

We know eating the same old lean meats and greens can get old. So here is a recipe to help liven up those veggies and keep you on track at the same time.

Indian Spicy-Sour chickpeas with cauliflower

  • 1 TSP finely grated ginger
  • 3 TSP fresh lemon juice
  • 2 TSP vegetable oil
  • 2 cups diced onion
  • 1-2 large jalapeno peppers (seeded and minced)
  • 1 14.5 ounce can diced tomatoes drained or 2 fresh tomatoes diced up
  • 1 TSP ground cumin
  • 1 TSP ground coriander
  • 1/2 TSP ground turmeric
  • 1/4 TSP ground cardamom
  • 14 TSP ground cloves
  • pinch of garlic salt
  • 2 15 ounce cans low-sodium chickpeas (rinsed and drained)
  • 1 medium head of cauliflower (florets cored and trimmed)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  1. Combine ginger and lemon juice in a small cup and set aside
  2. Heat a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add oil, then onion. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onion begins to brown about 4 mins. Add jalapeno and continue cooking until onion is brown all over, another 4-5 mins. Add tomato and various spices stir and continue to cook for about a minute. Add chickpeas and 1/2 cup of water. Cover and cook at medium heat for 10 mins, stirring occasionally and adding water if becomes dry.
  3. Add cauliflower and 1/4 cup water, cover and cook while stirring carefully until cauliflower becomes tender- about 7 minutes. Uncover and increase the heat to medium-high and cook to boil off excess liquids. Stir in the lemon juice mixture from step one and add cilantro.
  4. SERVE AND ENJOY! 🙂
