Smokey Chickpeas and Kale Over Baked Sweet Potatoes, Vegan-Gluten-Free

The best recipe for Smokey Chickpeas and Kale over Baked Sweet Potatoes
smokey chickpeas and kale over baked sweet potatoes vegan gluten free best recipe

This recipe is right on track with my previous post about prepping food for the week.  It was so quick to prepare, I had all the ingredients on hand and it tasted delicious!  Plus, it’s pretty budget friendly costing under $1.50 per serving!  All I had to do was heat the sweet potatoes I baked on Sunday, throw a can of chickpeas in a skillet with kale and fry an egg, taking 15 minutes tops to prepare!

I made a vegan version by omitting the fried egg.  Another option would be to eat the chickpeas and kale over a bowl of quinoa instead of baked sweet potato…or simply eating them alone!  I found the chickpea recipe on this wonderful blog using spinach instead of kale…this recipe is very versatile!  I will definitely be adding this recipe to my quick “go-to” meal list!
