Chickpea and Salmon Bowl

Hungry for everything!

Sometimes you just crave a bowl of food, filled with a little bit of everything! It is even better when it’s consumed with a variety of healthy items like salmon, curry chickpeas, sautéed kale and peppers.. Soooo good! 

My palate enjoys lots of fun flavors from around the world such as the West Indies. Understanding that coconut curry may not fit everyone’s taste buds, the chickpeas in this dish could be prepared with other flavors or substituted with other legumes, like lentils or red beans.

The most time consuming portion of this dish is the salmon and chickpeas, which takes approximately 45 minutes to prepare and cook. The other steps should take less than 5 minutes to make. Let’s dive into the ingredients!
