GV comments: This is a delicious and (bonus!) low-calorie dish. The Mexican-inspired spicing makes this not just a "good for you" lunch or dinner but a delight to eat. The roasted chickpeas are much more than a topping--they are integral to the flavor and nutrition of the dish. Of course, "cauliflower rice" is one of the best recent innovations in a while: you get all the advantages of a cruciferous vegetable but the sensation of eating a tasty starch. You can be virtuous and satisfied at the same time.

Timing: About 45 minutes

Affordability: Total $10 or less

Nutrition: Mostly whole-food unprocessed. The oil is the only exception to whole-food unprocessed. Otherwise this dish is packed with all sorts of nutrient-rich vegetables.

Gluten-free
