Curried Power Bowl

by | Sep 15, 2021

This recipe came about one warm summer day when I had just gotten home from work and wanted to relax in our backyard with my family. I pulled together a few ingredients that I thought may play well together and cooked this in a wok on our backyard stove while sipping on some wine. This dish is in honor of my husband who loves simple one-bowl meals. For any of you looking for an Indian-inspired meal that comes together easily, give this a try.

I took some of my favorite ingredients and created a delicious one-bowl meal for convenience, flavor, and easy clean-up. The golden hue of turmeric and aromatics turn each bite into a flavor and textural explosion. The addition of garbanzo beans to this recipe provides a nice protein and fiber upgrade.
