Welcome to the first day of 10 Days of Healthy! To kick off January, in my mind, a month of healthy recipes so you can get yourself out of that unhealthy food coma from the holidays, I am sharing this recipe for Roasted Cauliflower Steak and Crispy Chickpea Grain Bowl with you. It’s an incredibly easy, healthy, hearty lunch for when you just want to relax on the weekends or meal plan for the rest of your busy week.
So where do I start? First off, I want to confess and mention that I ate the ENTIRE head of cauliflower in this recipe. I roasted it up just as it says in the written recipe down below, photographed the bowl, and then ate all the cauliflower. I don’t regret one bit of it because it’s healthy! 🙂 (right?)
Stay tuned for Day 2 of 10 Days of Healthy tomorrow!
