Nourishing Chickpea Bowls with roasted cauliflower, sweet potatoes, and crave-worthy creamy almond curry dressing. A bright, filling and healthy meal packed with interesting flavors, fiber and plant protein. Great for prepping ahead since the sauce gets even more flavorful in the fridge. Vegan and gluten-free. 


Units Scale
  • 1 15oz can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 large head cauliflower, chopped into florets
  • 1 large sweet potato, diced
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 batch almond curry sunshine dressing
  • For serving: 2 cups cooked rice, chopped cilantro and chopped almonds or peanuts


  1. Soak almonds for dressing and get rice cooking (or use frozen/microwave to save time!). 
  2. Preheat oven to 425F. Line an extra large sheet pan or two regular ones with parchment paper for easy cleanup. Chop veggies.
  3. Place chickpeas, cauliflower florets and diced sweet potatoes onto sheet pan. Add olive oil and a couple good pinches of salt and pepper, tossing to combine. Spread in an even layer. Roast for 30-35 minutes, tossing halfway through.
  4. Make dressing.
  5. Assemble bowls by placing rice at the bottom followed by the chickpea veggie mixture. Drizzle with plenty of dressing you'll have some leftover), garnish with cilantro and almonds, and serve!
