Sweet Potato, Chickpea & Honey Steamed Greens

This sweet potato, chickpea and honey steamed green salad is fast becoming one of my favourite go to meals. The first part of the dish is actually an Oh She Glows recipe which is complimented by the sweet honey flavours from the spinach and kale.

  • 1 large sweet potato
  • 1 tin chickpeas
  • 1 smal onion
  • 1tsp coconut oil
  • 1tsp cinnamon
  • 1tsp salt
  • 1tsp honey
  • Splash of water
  • As much spinach/kale as you want

Start by chopping your sweet potato into cubes, slice your onions and then mix both with the chickpeas (rinsed), coconut oil, cinnamon and salt. Pop them in the oven at 200c for approximately half an hour. 5 minutes before they're done, you can prepare your greens. Melt the honey in a pan with just a splash of water, squash in your kale and spinach, pop the lid on and shake the pan about a bit...

Techincal I know. It only takes a couple of minutes for the steam from the honey/water mix to cook the veg. They'll look like this when they're done...

Remove your sweet potato, onions and chickpeas from the oven. They should be perfectly roasted! And that's it, job done!

I'm loving this recipe as a quick meal to cook in the evening and divide into portions for the next few days lunch, sprinkled with chopped nuts and goats cheese. You can serve it as an evening meal too if you like. The chickpeas are a great source of protein but if you fancy adding more I find a poached egg is ideal!

What are your favourite lunch recipes?
