Fall Nourish Bowls


Hello November!! Let’s kick-off the month with these  ‘Fall Nourish Bowls’…shall we?

I think ‘Fall Nourish Bowls’ is a pretty accurate name for this recipe. After all, the ingredients; sweet potatoes, rosemary, dried cranberries, and arugula, are all somehow associated with this season (or at least in my mind). Plus, these bowls are quite nourishing. Sweet potatoes and arugula are full of vitamins, chickpeas are packed with protein and fiber, and garlic is an excellent source of vitamin B6 and manganese, and all that good stuff!


To make these, all you’ll need is about 3 dollars and 30 minutes in the kitchen. Pretty simple, yeah?

Start out by gathering you ingredients, and then baking your sweet potatoes and chickpeas. (as pictured!)

Then, prepare your 3-ingredient mustard dressing, (a recent recipe discovery of mine) which I am super excited to be sharing, because it’s suuuuper tasty, oil free, and takes just seconds to prepare!


Within about 20 minutes, your potatoes & chickpeas should be done, then all you have to do is prepare your bowls by filling the bottom with arugula, then loading on your crispy baked chickpeas and sweet potatoes on top! Lastly, drizzle on your mustard dressing and there you go! A simple, hearty, nutritious meal that took just 30 minutes to prepare.

This recipe is definitely a favorite of mine!! I love that it’s:


gluten free





& takes just 30 minutes to prepare!

The price of ingredients will vary from store to store, but should be similar to what I listed. Buying food in bulk is generally less costly, and is a great way to save money! Most of the ingredients used in my calculations were non-organic and purchased from Trader Joe’s.
