{RECIPE & WIN} Moroccan vegetable & Chick Pea Curry. #FoodLoversFestive

I am LOVING sharing these recipes with you all. I absolutely adore cooking as it is and since becoming vegan I have had an absolute ball experimenting in the kitchen and trying new recipes. I went to visit my Grandparents the other day and my Grandma had a lovely book called ‘Heavenly & Healthy foods‘. I stole a few recipes from it and I am sharing one with you today.

This is the epitome of a balanced meal. There is SO much goodness in this meal and it is so incredibly tasty. The kids loved it and it made the most massive pot I have half of it frozen in the deep freeze for a lazy day.

This meal is a quick one. The only time you have to out in is in the cutting of the veggies. Otherwise you chick it all in, leaving it to cook and you’ve got yourself a nutritious, delicious pot of vegan goodness.

1 Onion, finely chopped
10ml Garlic, crushed

  6. #foodloversfestive Thank you so much for this delicious recipe. I have to say that I cannot choose just a single item from Food Lovers as I am a huge fan of their dried fruits, have a major thirst for orange juice and their delicious mixed fruits weekly is fantastic. Winning this R500 would be simply amazing.

  8. #foodloversfestive Thank you for this FABULOUS recipe – one of my favourite dishes is a chickpea curry. My favourite Food Lovers Market product is the range of nuts and seeds, love them!

  9. #foodloversfestive I love everything about Food lovers because they offer a wide variety of everythin and prices that suit your pockets especially the bulk deals on fruit and vegetables

  10. I absolutely love their range of melons… They’re always fresh! And the pricing makes them even more special!! Food lovers for the WIN!!!!

  11. My favourite product is the bread/rolls. Absolutely fresh, baked to perfection. A must have at the dinner table and lunch boxes. So much flavour, the freshly baked aroma is addictive.

  12. Ooh there are a few things I just love to purchase from Foodlovers. The mixed nut and seed section is my first stop whenever visiting a store! I eat tons of tomatoes too and I find that the tomatoes are always red and juicy, not glassy. Finally, the soup in winter is so convenient to grab on the go. #foodloversfestive

  16. Oooh la la. I love Food Lover’s. But I must say, I always end up buying HUGE blocks of cheese, and buying their own branded wine! Must be the frenchie in me! Great competition.

  17. YAY now I can comment.
    I love chickpea curry! But definitely leaving the mushrooms out though haha, they are most definitely NOT tasty 😛

    #foodloversfestive favourite produce is the cauliflower rice in a tub at the moment. Perfect size to split between two full meals 🙂
