Eating healthy year round is important to me. Thanksgiving is not a time to stuff fattening foods in your face and feel sick for the next three days. Well for some people it is, but not for my family. We will be having a Vegan Thanksgiving with healthy side dishes. We will have a board game and dessert party at the Grandparents house but overall we will be keeping it simple and healthy this year.
Chickpeas are still my favorite ingredient. This year I came up with the perfect Thanksgiving side dish. And to be honest, eating this Cauliflower side dish with my glazed carrots is my idea of a perfect Thanksgiving meal! Why are Chickpeas so good for you? These legumes are packed with protein and fiber as well as some key vitamins. The liquid that surrounds the chickpeas, sometimes called aquafaba, is almost a magical ingredient and can easily replace an egg white in many recipes.
Make this recipe, it looks just like mashed potatoes (which we all know are terrible for you) and make your Thanksgiving a bit healthier. This year I am thankful for all my friends, family, fellow foodies and all my lovely blog readers. I am thankful for each and every one of you.
