Vegan Indian Spice Bowls

Hello everyone! I know that many times when I am using a recipe on somebody’s blog, I don’t want to go through a lot of fluff to get to the recipe. So today, no fluff. Just know that if you like Indian flavors, Buddha bowls, chick peas, potatoes, and cabbage, you are in the right place. Also I have a grouchy toddler who is refusing to nap, so not much time to put into this intro at the moment. Peace and blessings and happy eating!
