Keeping things comforting, but healthy with these BBQ Chickpea Stuffed Sweet Potatoes. Chickpeas are roasted until crispy and tossed in BBQ sauce. Plus, anything you put inside a sweet potato gets a yes from my dawg!
People ask me all the time what my favorite comfort foods are. The answer I give more often than not is potatoes in all of their forms. When I was a kid, comfort was going through the Wendy’s drive through to get a baked potato with broccoli and cheese. I never like burgers or meat as a kid, and this, to me, was heaven. Now, in these difficult times more than ever, I am leaning on some of my favorite comfort foods. And nothing says comfort like stuffing a sweet potato with all sorts of goodies.
Or maybe that is just me!

Let’s get out of our comfort zone. By getting into our comfort zone.
I have grown up eating Indian food for most of my life. It is pretty much my favorite thing to eat (Spicy Sarah was my nickname in high school). My dad always loved taking me to the Indian buffet for lunch in our town, when pre-vegetarian me would load up on totally authentic butter chicken (blessed be he). Even though I am vegetarian, making my own indian food (and even gobbling up Trader Joe’s Chana Masala) makes for some of my favorite meals. And for me, nothing scream comfort quite like a big old warm bowl of dahl or curry chocked full of chickpeas or lentils.
I swear I have curry powder running through my veins. My yellow tinged veins.
