Freezer Meal Moroccan-Spiced Chickpeas

These chickpeas, you guys. THESE CHICKPEAS.

Here’s what we have going on here:

  • Protein-packed chickpeas
  • Sautéed garlic and onion
  • Lots of Moroccan-esque spices
  • Slow simmered fire-roasted tomatoes
  • Warm fluffy couscous
  • A quick herby cucumber salad for a bite of freshness
  • Yogurt or hummus to tie it all together

Even better news: it’s not only clean and healthy but can also be prepped to go from freezer to Instant Pot in a snap. That’s right. WINNING.

All you have to do it dump it all in a bag, freeze it, and pull it out when you’ve been living the takeout life a little too fiercly and need a healthy dinner in a snap.

Seriously. This is my colder-weather go-to for a super nutritious, plant-based meal that is basically the same experience as me eating my favorite comfort food. Okay, fine, pizza might still stand in a category all its own, but other than that, I’d say these chickpeas can compete with the best of them.
