This Indian-inspired dish will quickly become a weeknight staple. The fragrant, heavenly spiced sauce is incredible over anything—tofu, veggies, or in this case, chickpeas. This dairy-free butter chickpeas meal is satiating and packed with nutrients including protein, iron, and powerful antioxidants. Serve with rice or dairy-free naan, and keep the leftovers for lunch tomorrow.
