Chickpea Marinara Dish

I made this dish the other night for dinner and it was delicious; nutritious; and so simple to make! I am all about eating healthy, but you will not find me spending long hours cooking. With a busy lifestyle, I believe simple and convenient recipes are the key to success. Below you will find the ingredients I used, and I put the serving size for one in parenthesis. Just like a lot of my other recipes, you will notice I didn't put a serving size for the veggies. I encourage you to load up on the ones you enjoy most since they are low in calorie and high in nutrients, and then use moderation for those ingredients that are more calorie dense. This is great for an individual meal or a side dish for a family. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!


  • Chickpeas (1/2 cup)

  • Portabella mushrooms

  • Kale (I used finely chopped frozen kale that I had in the freezer that worked well)

  • Sun-dried tomatoes

  • Capers

  • Marina of choice (1/2 cup- I used "Primal Kitchen's Tomato Basil Marinara", because it has minimal and nutritious ingredients)

  • Nutritional yeast (1-2 TBSP)

  • Extra virgin olive oil (1 TSP)

  • Garlic (1 TSP)

  • Optional spices: garlic powder; onion powder; turmeric


  • Put a little extra virgin olive oil and garlic in a skillet on medium heat

  • Add veggies; chickpeas; spices; and marinara, and cook until simmer

  • Pour all ingredients into a bowl

  • Top with nutritional yeast

  • Enjoy!
