This Coconut Braised Chickpeas recipe from from Tasting to Thrive is perfect for Meatless Monday. I love that it’s loaded with veggies and has a delicious creamy coconut sauce. It was also simple to make and ready in 20-minutes! I served my coconut braised chickpeas over baked sweet potato and enjoyed he leftovers for lunch the next day. If you’re not a sweet potato fan, I’m sure this recipe would be delicious over rice too.

Time saving tip: cook sweet potato in the microwave for a baked potato in minutes! Simply wash, poke holes with a fork, and microwave until completely cooked.  You can also partially cook the potato in the microwave, then bake in the oven for a shorter time to finish cooking. This will take a bit longer but will result in crispier skin.

To make, you’ll sauté onion, garlic, and ginger in oil before adding coconut milk, chickpeas, milk, kale, sundried tomatoes, and lemon juice. This mixture will then simmer for 10-15 minutes. Serve mixture over a baked sweet potato, rice or quinoa. Enjoy!
