This super fast and easy recipe is absolutely delicious. Get all the flavor and creaminess of coconut milk without the fat and calories. This makes 3 2-cup servings and freezes really well making it a super fast healthy meal on the go. Chickpeas add a great texture and boost the protein content. Serve this over rice or shirataki noodles to really make a meal.
I have been experimenting! The pictures from left to right.
Okay, so why did I go to all this trouble to create this recipe. Well, after a couple of years of eating this way, I really missed this yummy recipe and needed to find a guilt free version that would keep the fat and calories low. Not only is coconut milk high in fat, it is high in saturated fat. So, it's a real heart stopper and huge derailer if you want to lose weight.
Below is a table of the fat and calorie comparison:
So, as you can see, if you opted to make this with the oat milk it would be 4 grams of fat and 127 calories per serving. With filtered water it would only be 2.6 grams of fat and 50 calories per serving.
Now that is awesome guilt-free cooking! To learn more about shirataki/konjac noodles check out my article: Cooking with Konjac Root which is coming soon.

Here’s a variation of an Engine 2 recipe. Eating grains with beans or lentils is the easiest way to get complete proteins in your diet on a regular basis. Black beans are packed with iron, a mineral that helps transport oxygen throughout the body. Iron absorption is enhanced when paired with acidic foods, so here we've combined beans with tomatoes - a pairing that's sure to please your body and your taste buds. Makes 4-5 servings.
This warming bean stew is hearty, comforting and only takes moments to prepare.
