  • 1/2 cup carrots, chopped
  • 1 1/2 tsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • Coconut "Yogurt" Sauce
  • 1/2 block firm tofu
  • 1 can lite coconut milk
  • 1 cup cucumber

  • 1 tbsp dill
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar

  • Roast the Chickpeas & Cauliflower

    Drain and rinse 1 can of chickpeas and add to a silicon baking sheet on a roasting pan. Sprinkle with 1 tsp of curry powder.

    Roast both pans at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.

    Cook the Quinoa

    While the chickpeas and cauliflower are roasting, cook 1/2 a cup of quinoa according to its package directions. It should make about 1 cup cooked. When done, mix 1/2 tsp of turmeric and 1/2 tsp of curry powder in with the quinoa.
