Mushroom chickpea skillet is a quick and easy dish for every day. We just started Veganuary and I am endlessly happy that more and more people are embracing plant-based dishes. That’s exactly why it’s important to me that the dishes are quick and easy to prepare, because not everyone has time to spend hours in the kitchen in everyday life. This skillet is ready in no time, very tasty and filling. I would say let’s get going.
Mushroom chickpea pan in creamy sauce
The dish consists essentially of a creamy sauce and the vegetables. For the sauce we need cashews, vegetable milk, lemon juice, salt, light miso and Dijon mustard. This goes once all together in the high-powered blender and is processed into a creamy sauce.
For the pan we need some oil, onions, garlic, thyme, mushrooms and chickpeas. This is all sweated and boiled down with the sauce. Already we are ready, fast and easy as promised. Instead of miso, you could also use nutritional yeast flakes. The important thing here is the subtle umami flavor that the paste adds to the dish.
TIP: I use rice as a side dish, preferably whole grain, for an extra serving of fiber.
Simple vegan chickpeas pan with creamy sauce
This simple skillet dish scores high on plant-based protein and fiber. The chickpeas are low in calories and high in antioxidants. They also have very little fat and lots of high-quality, plant-based protein. Sounds good, doesn’t it? It is. The complex dietary fibers it contains provide long-lasting satiety and ensure that blood sugar remains stable for a long time and does not rise too high.
Mushrooms are rich in vitamins and minerals and have few calories with 22 kilocalories per 100g. They even contain vitamin D, a hormone that the body produces when the skin is exposed to enough sunlight. In addition, vitamins B2, B3 and B5, as well as phosphorus, potassium, copper and selenium.
All in all, this dish is quick and easy to make and is packed with essential nutrients.
