Chana Masala

The chana masala is extremely easy to concoct. It’s a healthy vegan and gluten-free dish, where the star is Garbanzo beans, better-known as chickpeas. They are a source of protein, carbs, and fiber. They team up very nice with the flavored tomato-based sauce.

Well, I love to eat! I guess I always did. Tasty foods, traditional foods, fast-foods, healthy foods and, again, not so healthy ones. You name it.
