Time to get back to normal eating! If you are like me you probably overdid it a bit on Thanksgiving and the leftovers day. My scale is not happy and neither am I. What could be a better mind and body cleanser than a delicious vegan dinner.!?
After soaking the dried split chickpeas for a half an hour, they go into the Instant Pot with some spicy tomatoes, onions, garlic, ginger, and spices. And of course enough water for the chickpeas and the pot. We set the pressure on high for 15 minutes and then let it cool naturally for 10 minutes before releasing the steam.
John made some rice earlier in the day and I mix a half cup of it with about 3/4 cup of cauliflower rice. Making this mixture gives me some rice texture and goodly amount of rice/cauliflower rice. Since both the rice and the chickpeas are hot, the in between layer of raw greens wilt nicely. I just buy a prewashed bag of greens that I can use for salads and for dinners.
Now that I have had one reasonable meal and emptied the refrigerator of holiday food I can get started with my return to basics regimen.
