When I just started out as a plant-based foodie I made this quick chickpeas in tomato sauce recipe a lot. Like a couple of times per week. I was too busy to cook so anything longer than 15 minutes was too much. However, I do wanted to enjoy a meal made from scratch. This dish became my go-to meal. But also these days I sometimes fall back to this quick, delicious and simple recipe, because I usually have all the ingredients already in my kitchen cupboards. 

Looking for another easy low-budget recipe with tomato sauce? I can also recommend this quick soup recipe.

You can easily change the taste of this recipe by changing the spices and herbs to your liking. Also, if zucchini is not your thing try broccoli, cauliflower, spinach or eggplant. And of course, you can serve it with anything you like such as buckwheat (noodles) or millet. I cook buckwheat for example in a batch on a Sunday so I know I will be able to cook this meal from scratch within 15 minutes during the week.

I hope you’ll give this recipe a try and who knows it will  become your quick go-to recipe too! Let me know on social media with Chickpeas and tomato sauce in a white bowl on a blue striped napkin with a wooden spoon

    Hi! Can I meal prep this recipe? It’s so quick and easy with staple ingredients! How long does it keep in the fridge? How do you suggest to reheat it? Thanks so much for inspiration!

      Hi!

      Great questions. Yes, you can meal prep this! It will keep in the fridge for up to 4 days. I would reheat it in a pan or microwave if you use that.

      Hope this helps!
