For the spiced chickpeas:

  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ¼ ground chilli
  • ¼ garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 can chickpeas , drained and rinsed


  • 1 small (300grams) sweet potato
  • ¼ head of cauliflower
  • 2 cups kale
  • ½ teaspoon turmeric
  • teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil divided


  • Make the spiced chickpeas. Preheat the oven to 200°C and line a pan with baking paper. In a small bowl combine the cumin, paprika, chilli powder & salt. Pat down the rinsed chickpeas with a paper towel to absorb the moisture. Add to a medium sized bowl, drizzle with the olive oil and add the spice mix. Toss to combine. Place chickpeas on prepared baking pan and bake for 15 minutes.
  • In another bowl, add cauliflower that has been chopped into bite size pieces and drizzle over about ½ a tablespoon of olive oil, the turmeric and salt. Toss until cauliflower is coated. Place on a lined baking tray and bake for 15 minutes.
  • For the sweet potato mash, peel and chop the sweet potato into 1 inch sized pieces. Add to a small saucepan and cover with water. Place on the stove on a high heat and boil until soft. Drain and mash with a potato masher or a fork. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Tear your kale into small pieces ensuring all of the woody stems have been removed. In a hot frying pan, add a splash of olive oil, kale, and a pinch of salt. Toss kale until all leaves are shiny and covered in oil. Allow the leaves to cook a little until the edges get a little black colour to them.
  • Assemble everything together in a bowl and enjoy!


These bowls do make great meal prep however the chickpeas will loose some of their crunchiness.
