Savoury Tomato Chickpeas

This is a great staple vegetarian meal to have handy in your fridge, and it is so versatile, tasty and a great dish to make ahead of time for a quick lunch or dinner! I like to serve it warm with a side of soba noodles + leafy greens, and then use it cold the next day as a salad topping or a filling stuffed in roasted sweet potatoes and served with a guacamole or creamy hummus dip (this lentil + hemp protein hummus is also one of my faves!).

I love how quickly it comes together, and how balanced it is; perfect balance of light, but hearty. Fresh, yet comforting. Perfect for the fall season ahead. And if you prefer, you can easily swap the chickpeas for lentils.
