Masala Chickpea Bowl with Chana Masala Spice Chickpea Dressing.

Masala Chickpea Bowl with Chana masala Spice Chickpea Dressing | Vegan Richa #vegan #glutenfree #bowl #soyfree #chickpeas can be #oilfree

Summer has brought out the bowl person in me, In general I prefer a bowl of steaming spicy chana masala with rice or flatbread most days. But all the heat and spice when the temps are in the 90s means another hour to cool down after the meal. So a cooler chana masala bowl today. 

Spice the chickpeas with chana masala spice blend, use some of the chickpeas to make a creamy chickpea dressing. Add roasted veggies, spiced beans or other veggies like broccoli or cauliflower, crunchy greens, avocado, salt and pepper and done. Make it spicy to preference and serve warm or cold. The dressing is oil-free. Rest of the bowl ingredients can also be made oil-free. Get some chana masala spice blend from the Indian store or online, or make the spice blend from scratch.
