Chicken Sausages & Shrimps Paella

Chicken Sausages & Shrimps Paella

Chicken sausages and shrimps paellaHi!
This is another one of my left overs inspired recipes. It does not require complicated ingredients, it is quick to make and you can cook a big batch for the week. It is not the traditional paella but it is very savory and healthy. I added a bit of Turmeric to it for extra health benefit (see my Turmeric and Zucchini Turkey Meatballs recipe to learn more about the benefits of using Turmeric).

Thanks and Enjoy!

Turmeric has become one of my favorites spices to use in recipes. The reason being, it has multiple health benefits. Turmeric can help prevent or reduce effects of some diseases. One of the best-known benefits of this spice is its anti-inflammatory compound. Some studies show that Turmeric is more effective than most of the over the counter pain medication. You might not know but, it can also help prevent weight loss. 

You should know that Turmeric does not have a strong taste so it is easy to pair with different foods and spices.

Vegan Chickpea Bowl

I am in love with bowls! They are gaining more and more popularity lately. It is probably because they are so easy to put together and there are endless combinations. The best way I would describe them is:

Fresh
healthy
versatile
delicious

This Vegan Chickpea Bowl was inspired by my left overs. I literally took the vegetables I had left in my fridge and paired them with what was in my kitchen cabinet. The result was so yummy! The avocado dressing is bringing everything together. I also added unsweetened coconut shreds on top of it all to put a twist to it.

BTW, I don't suggest you eat this bowl with chopsticks unless you are very good at it. To be quite honest, I only used the chopsticks for the picture. As soon as the picture was taken, I grabbed a fork and inhaled it all. Lol 

We would love to have your opinion on this recipe. So, go ahead and leave a comment below. If you share a picture of it on Instagram, don’t forget to tag @vic.r_c so we can see what you came up with.
