This Gluten Free Vegan Chickpea and Cauliflower Sheet Pan Dinner with Pomegranate Harissa Glaze is the perfect easy one pan weeknight meal that is even easy to batch prep and freeze for busy weeknights!
I’m writing this a week and a half before my due date, PRAYING that by the time you read this, baby will be here. But hey, these little aliens decide what they wanna do when they wanna do them, so I guess you’ll just have to be following my instagram to know.
In the weeks and days leading up to baby, I’ve been answering emails, writing blog posts (clearly), walking up and down the stairs, bouncing on my yoga ball, and doing a hell of a lot of batch cooking. I’m exhausted, I’m not going to lie, so meal prep has to be super easy. I also am enjoying making big batches of things so that I can easily freeze them for the busy weeks and months to come. This is where this recipe for gluten free vegan chickpea and cauliflower sheet pan dinner with pomegranate harissa glaze comes into play. I don’t care if you’re vegan or gluten free, or each ALL the things (like me and the hubs do), you’re going to love this one pan wonder.
How to Make Gluten Free Vegan Chickpea and Cauliflower Sheet Pan Dinner with Pomegranate Harissa Glaze
This sheet pan dinner has ALL my favourite flavours in one place. Naturally sweet sweet potato, supply cauliflower and crispy little chickpeas get tossed in a pomegranate harissa glaze with Middle Eastern za’atar seasoning. I’m kinda obsessed with this glaze I created so feel free to make a huge batch of it and put it on EVERYTHING. If you’re not vegan, it’s particularly delicious on pork tenderloin or chicken breasts. Yum, yum, yum.
OK but back to this gluten free vegan chickpea and cauliflower sheet pan dinner. Guys, one pan. 20 minutes. Meals for DAYS. I personally enjoy this as is a lot of the time, but for something more substantial, whip up a big batch of couscous, quinoa or brown rice to serve it with, and freeze the rest of that too. I know it’s easy to make a side dish of grains, but I assume even that may be asking for a lot when I’ve got a newborn on my boob all day.
