I advice you to serve it with lamb’s lettuce and a dip made of Tahin and soy sauce. The salad is a perfect addition, because all veggies are roasted, so you might crave something fresh. ? The dip is definitely necessary to add more flavor and spice and it fits absolutely perfect to this meal! 

This meal is rich in…

… plant-based proteins and zinc, thanks to chickpeas, lentils and Brussels sprouts

… healthy fatty acids, thanks to Tahin and linseed oil

… vitamin C, thanks to bell pepper

fibers and iron, thanks to Brussels sprouts

As you can see, this vegan meal is healthy and versatile – and tastes amazing! ?
Are you trying to „eat the rainbow“ as well? I personally love to combine many different ingredients and throw them all together to one meal, because that’s how I can ensure that my body receives all essential nutrients and my stomach is satisfied – not missing out on something.
