Comforting Vegan Chickpea Casserole

Comforting Vegan Chickpea Casserole

Coming up with dinner ideas is something I always struggle with. I don’t like having the same thing twice, unless I really, really love it, which means you’ll often find me mid-week trying to come up with ideas for the rest of the week.

One of my go-tos though is a simple casserole. They’re super easy to make, you just throw everything into a big pot, and that’s it! It’s a great option when you’re feeling too lazy to cook but still want something healthy and homemade. I like to make more servings than I need, because then I can have it for leftovers the next day for lunch or dinner.

This casserole has loads of different veggies, as well as chickpeas to help bulk it out and give it some of that all important protein. You can get pretty creative when making this and throw in any veggies you have lying around. My absolute favourite vegetable in a casserole is carrots, so I always like to add in loads of them, but you can sub them for pretty much any veg you want.

Serve this with some crusty bread and some steamed greens for a healthy, warming mid-week dinner. Enjoy!
