Notes

Substitutes:
  • Oil: any oil of choice would work. 
  • Broth: we used vegetable broth but you can use chicken or beef broth. Don't have broth? Just use water. 
  • Veggies: add in any of your favorite veggies. 
  • Chickpeas: instead of chickpeas consider using beans 
  • Pasta: this is optional but a nice touch to make it a filling meal. Use any healthier pasta of choice.
Storage:
Place leftovers in a container and store in the fridge for up to 5 days. Reheat in the microwave when ready to eat. You can freeze for up to 3 months.
