Meatless Monday: Ten Dollar Chickpea, Mushroom and Cauliflower Curry

Meatless Monday: Ten Dollar Chickpea, Mushroom and Cauliflower Curry

My cleanse ended Friday evening.  Saturday morning I woke up excited, but cautious to eat.  I enjoyed a nice bowl of steel cut oatmeal with apples, walnuts, cinnamon and chia seeds.  I was surprised and thrilled that my non-breakfast eating husband ate a warm bowl along side me.

After a leisurely breakfast, I took my list and stocked up on fresh veggies, lean proteins and healthy snacks.  The price of my groceries (over $200) shocked me and reminded me how hard it is to be healthy.

This vegetable curry I found at she let them eat cake, not only is easy and the for sure the best thing I've eaten this month, it also is affordable.

Assuming you have the other somewhat staple ingredients (coconut oil, olive oil, onion, garlic, almond milk) already stocked in your pantry (which I know we don't all have, but buy them and you will use them over and over).

The smell concerned my eight year old, as curry is not common in my cooking rotation.  He happily munched on the chickpeas and my daughter preferred the cauliflower raw and of course the rice I served with it.  Curry is an acquired taste, so I'm not giving up on the kids loving it some day.

For about $10, I ended up with a delicious, healthy, filling and unique dinner.
