Chickpea Tikka Masala

Another meatless Lenten Friday here, and I’m really excited to share this super easy, super flavorful vegan meal with you all!

Chickpea Tikka Masala

This slow cooker meal is pretty much a dump-and-go.

You can make this ahead by prepping all the ingredients in a gallon zipper bag and freezing. It also reheats really well, so making a day or two ahead also works well.

Either way, you end up with a flavorful meal when it’s done. Serve with rice or naan to soak up some of that delicious sauce!

This was Julie’s favorite meatless meal of the whole series – she had thirds the first night we made this, and then ate leftovers for lunch the next two days!
