Cauliflower Tikka Masala with Chickpeas

We are excited to introduce a new recipe as part of our collection of five-ingredient meals!

This Cauliflower Tikka Masala with Chickpeas is ready in about 10 minutes and does not require a shopping cart full of groceries. The simple addition of a 15 oz. jar of tikka masala sauce to the cooked cauliflower gives this dish all of the herbs and spice it needs. The chickpeas help to balance out the meal’s nutrient content, and if desired, cubed tofu could also be added for extra protein. For a creamy condiment to put on top, try a dollop of plain yogurt and to brighten the flavor, garnish with fresh cilantro.
