Chickpea "Andatouille"

Since coming home from surgery my awesome mum has been such a huge help in ensuring I'm fuelled with the right (clean) nutrients.

Last week she was briefed  - "Your daughter is no longer eating meat".  So she has been on a mission to create some fabulous vegetarian and clean eating dishes, which we can both savour and enjoy. 

We are loving trying new dishes and suggesting new ingredients to try (it's real life Ready Steady Cook and Masterchef rolled into one).

Tonight she made Chickpea Ratatouille, which Mr V named "Andatouille" after mum's name :)
