Curried Chickpea Stuffed Sweet Potato

I always have a can of chickpeas in my cupboard. If you don't see at least one can, you'll know something's up. A can of chickpeas is cheap, nutritious, and lasts forever, making chickpeas my ultimate pantry staple. You can make some pretty delicious things with the humble bean, like this Curried Chickpea Stuffed Sweet Potato. It's more of a Caribbean-style curry than an Indian one, and it make an easy lunch for your work week.


Here's why I love canned chickpeas:


1. Canned chickpeas are super nutritious

They are a source of both protein and fibre, which help to keep you feeling full, help to manage blood sugars, and can help with weight management.


2. They are inexpensive

Sure, dried chickpeas are cheaper, BUT if you're less likely to prepare them, you might not get the benefit of the $$ savings.


3. It's better for the environment

Making small changes can make a big impact. Switching up 1-2 animal proteins for plant based can make a positive change for the planet!


4. They are versatile as heck

Here are some of my favorite things to make with chickpeas:
