Cheezy Chickpeas, Taco Tuesday, & Purple Soup!

Although I don't really subscribe to the Engine 2 way of eating (I eat a little oil, and I couldn't live without smoothies), I do subscribe to their newsletter! I like working occasional oil-free meals into my life because that helps me consume the oil I do eat in moderation. And let's be honest — Rip's kinda hot. Anyway, Rip recently shared a video with some recipes he eats in a typical day, and one of those was these Cheezy Chickpeas

You basically add nooch and a bit of whole wheat flour to some chickpeas, mash them, and cook it into a gravy, and then you serve over greens or broccoli and whole wheat pasta. It's really simple and really good! Here's the recipe and here's the video.

Here's a recent Tofu Stir-fry. Marinated, air-fried tofu with broccoli and mushrooms over brown rice. About as simple as it gets!

This past Tuesday, I got Taco Tuesday takeout from Global Café at Crosstown Concourse! They have the BEST Black Bean Tacos, and you get free chips and homemade salsa, plus a margarita for $2.95. And the margs are strong! It's such a great deal, and I'd do it every Tuesday if I could control myself around the chips. What you see here is about one-third of the chips. They give you a lot, and I can't stop eating them.

And finally, here's some purple soup! I made the Anja (Crown Chakra) Soup from Eat Feel Fresh. I've been working my way through all the chakra soups in this book, and this one was fantastic. It's made with purple sweet potatoes, onion, ginger, and coconut milk and then drizzled with toasted sesame oil.

Rip is so hot!!! I thought I was alone in thinking that, I think he's very underappreciated!!
The purple soup is so freaking beautiful. I love food that just looks so vibrant!!
