Curry Chickpea Cous Cous (Vegan)

We eat at Whole Foods often, and this new recipe is a copycat version of the Curry Chickpea Cous Cous from the Whole Foods salad bar.

I have several other copycat versions from the whole food salad bar.  Two of my other favorites are the carrot ginger detox salad and the kale apple salad.

I used Israeli cous cous to keep the recipe true to the whole foods version.  I know cous cous is not gluten free, but I really do think buckwheat or quinoa could be used in place of the cous cous if you wanted to keep the recipe gluten free.

However, keep in mind that buckwheat will take longer to cook than the cous cous will.

We ate this cold like a salad, but you can most definitely warm it up if you prefer.  It’s simple to make too.

I don’t know about you, but Fall gets me in the mood for warmer dishes.  That is exactly what I have for you today with this Green Curry with Chickpeas.  The warm spices from the curry paste plus the protein from the chickpeas make this a hearty and satisfying dish!

Curry Roasted Chickpeas

Have you tried roasted chickpeas?  They make such a delicious snack.  You can make them sweet or savory. Today I opted for savory to make these Curry Roasted Chickpeas.  These were so good.  I had to hide them from my husband, because he kept trying to eat them before I could shoot the photo!  My 6 year old liked them too. They make the perfect healthy snack.

Sweet Potato Coconut Curry

Out of all the veggie pasta out there, sweet potato pasta is my fave!  I love that you can eat a large portion and not feel guilty! I was never really into regular pasta that much, so I am loving all these veggie pastas.  In this Sweet Potato Coconut Curry the flavors work in a magical way.  I seriously could have eaten it all myself, but I had to save some for Marcus!

This dish is super easy to make!  I used my spiralizer to make the sweet potato pasta.  It only takes a few minutes, but it is an arm workout!  This recipe fits all diets too.  Vegan, gluten free and paleo.  If you want to add more protein to this, you can always add your favorite protein.  I added some pepitas to mine.

Curry Kidney Bean Veggie Burgers

I just love homemade veggie burgers.  These Curry Kidney Bean Veggie Burgers are the latest recipe.  This recipe was inspired by my curried kidney beans and corn recipe.  It’s hard to make these Curry Kidney Bean Veggie Burgers look good in a photo, but I promise you they are delicious!  These veggie burgers are great on their own, or you can eat them on a bun.  I personally skip the bun and eat a couple patties with some veganaise.  I also serve them with a side of roasted vegetables.  So good!

These healthy veggie burgers are vegan and gluten free.  I also used almond flour instead of oat flour, so they are grain free too! 🙂  If you didn’t want to use almond flour, oat flour would also work well.  I think spelt flour would too.
